Hi Todd,

Yeah, LLDB trunk tip builds with Visual Studio 2013.

There's no Python support on Windows yet, however we've been working on it.
Have ported the bash scripts used for generating SWIG wrappers to Python 
so that it's cross-platform.
Just ironing out some issues and we'll be upstreaming it soon.

As Colin mentioned, there's no native debugging on Windows yet.
