[lldb-dev] Get source-map from python API?

There is currently no API to access the settings.  You have to cons up commands and use SBCommandInterpreter::HandleCommand to execute them.

This is one of the remaining holes in the SB API.

The SBSourceManager class only exposes a single DisplaySourceLinesWithLineNumbers() method which displays the source in console output. Ideally it should expose an API in SBSourceManager for us to provide the old FileSpec and get back a new remapped FileSpec.
