The straightforward way to do specify a complex command line for debugging is:
lldb —arch=x86_64 — /bin/ls -IAF
everything after the — are arguments to the program. This also allows you to cut & paste whole command lines. It works by the trick that if you haven’t specified a file before the — then the first of these arguments will be the file. The other way, where you supply the file in among the arguments was to accommodate the ordinary lldb usage in the case where you do something like:
lldb /bin/ls —arch=x86_64 — oops I forgot I wanted to add arguments
I don’t find either of these particularly confusing, the “—“ is used all over in unix & lldb, so that seems pretty straightforward, and I don’t think adding extra levels of quoting around the command line is going to make this any easier.

There were bits in the old option definitions which defined with options could be specified with which other options. The other thing that might throw people for a loop is if llvm doesn't support this style:
> % lldb /bin/ls --arch=x86_64 -- -lAF
> getopt_long allowed you to have arguments mixed in between the options so the arguments would have bee "/bin/ls" and "-lAF". Options would have been "--arch=x86_64".
