[lldb-dev] Using control+left/right arrow to jump between words in the prompt

On OS X Ctrl left & right arrow are taken over by the system to move between virtual desktops.  Instead, option left & right are the equivalent gesture for move by word on OS X, and in the OS X lldb, option left & right do indeed move by word.

LLDB doesn't do most of this stuff by hand, it lets editline handle it, and so Ctrl-Arrow may be an optional feature you need to enable.  I'd have no objection to turning this on for Linux and Windows if that is appropriate.  The appropriate equivalent already works for OS X so this seems only fair.
