No, nothing has changed.  lldb only operates in "control other process" mode, not in "observe other process" mode, and controlling yourself is a neat trick you might be able to manage, but would add a lot of complexity for no clear benefit for most of the usages of lldb.

On OSX, you can use CoreSymbolication to take a backtrace of yourself.  There are likely similar facilities on other systems.
