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

So I'm guessing the scheme runs do-gtest.py.  I'd like to delete that file
as well as all the Makefiles in the directory if possible.  It seems like
these files should be built using the normal Xcode build system the same
way the rest of LLDB is built.

The way the CMake does it is that each test folder generates a new
executable.  So right now it will build HostTests.exe,
ProcessLinuxTests.exe, and UtilityTests.exe.  And then CMake will invoke
lit (the LLVM test runner) to run each of the executables one by one and
print the output.

I'm not sure if that's easy or feasible to do in the Xcode build.  I kind
of don't want to leave this do-gtest.py and Makefiles in the build though,
because the more of this stuff we have the more maintenance it is, and
things tend to rot.
