[lldb-dev] [Bug 16526] New: New API to scan executable for architectures before creating a target

Your change currently allows architectures to be enumerated, but not .o files in a .a file. If you look closely at what the internal code is doing when it enumerates the module specifications, it can get a list of all architectures _and_ all .o files. If we expose this publicly, I would rather see a new SBModuleSpec and SBModuleSpecList class be created, and then we should be able to add a static function to SBModule that returns a SBModuleSpecList:
SBModule::GetModuleSpecifications (const char *path);
This way we could take a universal .a file and get back a bunch of SBModuleSpec objects that represent the arch/objects in the .a file. Then we would need to have a function on SBTarget to add a module to a target using a SBModuleSpec.
