I would actually be also surprised if it works. However, the option I 
think is important to keep is to be able to build lldb-server without 
python around. Nobody uses the lldb client on android (in fact, I'm 
pretty sure it doesn't work), but lldb-server is used there. Getting a 
working python for android is hard, and it seems counterproductive to 
ask somebody to do it, when lldb-server does not even use python.

If we can factor the code in such a way that code requiring python is 
not built/used when building lldb-server, then making python support 
mandatory for the rest seems reasonable to me.
