Ah, didn’t know that.  I’m sure a bunch of the others I mentioned also have similar reasons for being where they are.

Ultimately its a judgement call, but i’d say that libDebugInfoDWARF is a less bad place for this file than libSupport.  Not a great reason to move it, but if someone wants to I still wouldn’t personally object.
