+                                                Currently IRInterpreter implements a portion of the LLVM IR, but it doesn't handle
+                                                vector data types and there are plenty of instructions it also doesn't support.
+                                                Conversely, lli supports most of LLVM's IR but it doesn't handle remote memory and
+                                                its function calling support is very rudimentary.  It would be useful to unify these
+                                                and make the IR interpreter -- both for LLVM and LLDB -- better.  An alternate strategy
+                                                would be simply to JIT into the current process but have callbacks for non-stack memory
+                                                access.
