> I disagree that it is "carrying purity a little too far". My goal is to see LLDB's non-plugin libraries be more language agnostic.

I have two motivations for this:

> Better language support in LLDB, making it easier to add support for new languages in a clean fashion.
>  Shrinking the size of lldb-server. Though the lldb on llvm.org doesn't suffer from this problem too much, swift-lldb has an issue where the lldb-server you build is incredibly bloated. On Linux I am measuring about 162MB and on android I measured 61MB. It is incredibly difficult to shrink the size without first decoupling components. Because swift-lldb is a downstream project, I want to make sure that the abstractions there make sense with what is on llvm.org, so I am doing this work here first.

Those are good goals. Thank you for working on this!

I don't yet see the connection between those goals and this patch, but I might be missing something. Would CPPLanguageRuntime need to be anything but a forward declaration in Process.h?
