[lldb-dev] I'd like to make Windows an officially supported platform for LLDB.

The LLDB homepage has the following to say about platform support:
LLDB is known to work on the following platforms, but ports to new
platforms are welcome:
- Mac OS X desktop user space debugging for i386 and x86-64
- iOS simulator debugging on i386
- iOS device debugging on ARM
- Linux local user-space debugging for i386 and x86-64
- FreeBSD local user-space debugging for i386 and x86-64
Windows is not listed here. I would like to list it. What level of
functionality needs to be present, and how many tests need to pass before I
can list Windows here? Can I do it now, with the caveat that it's still
experimental? I have the test suite running (although many tests failing),
source level debugging with DWARF, breakpoints, stepping, stack traces, etc
all working with basic support, so this seems like a good time to announce
support for Windows. Obviously many things will not work, but we plan to
support this long term, so it will just be a matter of time.
Along with an update to the supported platforms on the homepage, I plan to
add some specific Windows instructions to the build page related to Python,
required packages that need to be installed, etc.
Additionally, I hope to follow this up with a post to the LLVM blog
announcing experimental support for live debugging on Windows along with a
very high level overview of our future plans.
