What exactly *is* a .app file on disk?  Is it literally just a directory?
If so then the test can simply create the directory.  Or is it more like "a
directory that's actually compressed into a single file, sorta like a zip
file, but using a different format"?

If it's the latter, it would be nice if we had an llvm tool that could
create them.  As a fallback, perhaps the lldb-test tool could be given a
command line option like --treat-as-bundle, where it pretends an existing
directory is actually a bundle, so that the tests would work without one.
