Remember that a gdb compatibility mode sufficient for usefully running the gdb testsuite would mean compatibility in the details of the output printing, not just the command input.  Even when working in gdb itself, you have to be very careful touching anything that affects output or you will cause massive testsuite failures (I speak from experience...)  Implementing this in lldb would not be a simple task.  The amount of effort it would require would be much more productively spent adding test cases to the extant test suite.
