First off, thanks for doing this, that is great!  If this also works with the gdb-mi mode, you will make our emacs friends happy as well.

If this is just an independent tool that doesn't touch the core lldb sources (and doesn't use anything directly from the gdb MI implementation, since we don't want to mix GPL'ed code in with lldb), I see no reason not to just check it in now, and then iterate on it in situ.  That is much easier than handing around patch files, and since there's no chance it will interfere with anybody working on parts of lldb that existed before the patch, can't do any harm.  I spoke to GregC and he agrees this is a reasonable course.

Again, thanks for working on this.
