I am sure interested in DWARF-5 .debug_names.  I wrote its producer+consumer
for GDB (but not producing/using DW_IDX_DIE_offset as GDB cannot use it).

FYI FSF binutils readelf can read .debug_names already for some possible
format cross-check (to prevent multiple incompatible implementations).

Originally I expected I will reuse the GDB .debug_names producer for LLVM:

But I see you were faster.
