[lldb-dev] Is anyone using the LLDB CMake standalone build?

I'm not using the standalone build on Windows, i just suffer through
opening a mega solution. Reid did some work recently to make it better, but
it still doesn't totally support anyone's needs.

The main motivation for having a standalone build is that it's a necessary
(but not necessarily sufficient) precursor to having a usable xcode
solution, which is itself a necessary (but again perhaps not sufficient)
precondition to moving towards a single build system.

I'm not versed enough in the LLVM core shared CMake infrastructure, but I
envision a world where supporting a standalone build requires almost 0
project specific CMake code. Sadly, achieving that seems quite difficult
