I've always assumed that the reason the apple guys don't generate their
xcode projects from cmake is that there is some magic in the xcode projects
that isn't supported by cmake-xcode project generator. Is there any truth
What is the intended purpose of the LLDB CMake standalone build? If it is
to build against an installed clang/llvm, it doesn't seem like it's worth
the extra complexity...
