Hmm…sure? I can try. Feel free to send me any tips.

It does show syntax errors when trying to import the existing lldb module in Python 3, however.

Most likely the problem is just that I never updated the build system to work with a platform other than Windows.  Unfortunately, being that I work primarily on Windows, I'm probably not the best person to fix this, but if you want to take a stab at it I can give you some pointers to put you in the right direction.

Is it an installation issue on my side, or did 3.6.2 not have your changes yet? I can always install a newer version of lldb if it’s simply too old.

I spent a LONG time making this work.  :)  I've only ever tested the Python 3 support on Windows, and I've only tested 3.5 and above, but I don't expect any major difficulties getting it working on another platform, although you may need to tweak the CMake a little bit to get it building on your platform if it's not Windows.  Please try it and let me know how it goes.
