Some part of it, yes. Thanks so much for your work! Hope that is OK?
(sorry that I forgot to mention it, I was going to explain that in the much
bigger patch for MingW, partly based on the changes from the windows branch)

My hope is to first get the mingw changes merged upstream (changes are not
so huge, but are still a good base for the MSVC port), so that MSVC-related
changes can then be incrementally merged upstream as well.

So far, I could manage to use LLDB libraries to debug a windows exe
compiled with GCC, including stackframe and dwarf evaluations -- but still
a long way to go.
