[lldb-dev] Is anyone using the gtest Xcode project?

Xcode has "projects" and then "workspaces" and "schemes".  Workspaces aggregate projects.  Schemes exist in both workspaces and projects and are the way to say "do something with some of the stuff referred to by this project/workspace."  So the way to do this formally is to have the gtest scheme build & run the tests from the gtest project. 

The lldb.xcworkspace file does reference the gtest xcode project, and it has a scheme for the gtest.

Not sure what the scheme does yet, I'll look in a few minutes if nobody beats me to it, I'm in the middle of things right now.
