I think the implications of this are zero. In the post mortem case we would still create an (in-process) instance of ProcessMinidump, and it work the the same way as it does now. Just like we create a ProcessElfCore for opening linux core files even though we always use lldb-server (via ProcessGdbRemote) for live debugging.

Pretty much nothing of what lldb-server does is useful for debugging core files anyway. (Though I have had some ideas about creating a mock lldb-server operating on core files for the purposes of testing lldb.)
