Yeah, w.r.t. the actual builder part, it seems to me any option is going to be sufficiently simple to use that it would be hard for the incremental benefits to lldb developers to ever amortize the cost of switching. The only compelling reason to me is if one or the other tool made it much easier to get building the test cases out of tree working, but that seems unlikely.
