Thanks for the pointer - Eric and I were chatting about this on the
way in this morning & I've some ideas about how this refactoring could
lay the foundation for resolving that issue - though I'm not sure I'll
get all the way to that in this particular refactoring effort. The
debug_line.dwo is my motivating use case for now.

(basically the idea is that once we've got line tables as a reusable
component it'd be nice to have each (compile or type) unit refer to
its line table directly (rather than going through DwarfDebug then to
MCStreamer and looking up by CUID each time..) - once that happens, we
could build a line table factory function into the MCStreamer - and
MCAsmStreamer would just keep returning the same line table while
MCObjectStreamer would return a new one each time (and we'd just keep
the type unit 'line' table in DwarfDebug directly))
