I'll check into that again. I ran across llvm-pdbdump earlier but couldn't
get it to build on a vanilla 3.8 install (CMake is convinced I don't have
the DIA SDK and I haven't found a way to change its mind). I stopped short
of reading the code though so I wasn't aware of how much is actually there!

Anyways, I'll pore over what's in trunk and see if there's anything I can
contribute. Thanks for the pointer.
