[lldb-dev] defining an alias that passes a parameter to a script command

(First please let me know if there is a better mailing list for user
questions like this.)
I want to write some commands in Python and to give them handy aliases.
My first thought was to do this:
command alias foo script MyPythonFunction(%1)
but that doesn't work, as script takes "raw input" and won't expand the
%1. Is there a way I can make that work?
My next thought was to define a command handler from Python for "foo".
I tried this:
def DoExecute(self, debugger, command, retobj):
# ... implementation of the foo command ...
ci = lldb.debugger.GetCommandIntepreter()
ci.AddCommand("foo", Handler(), "help text")
but it looks like AddCommand is not exposed in the Python bindings. Any
reason why? I guess then I would have had to parse out the arguments
from |command|, and it wasn't clear to me whether there's an easy way to
do that. Ideally I could declare that my command takes a single value
argument, and I would be given an SBValue object.
Is there an idiomatic way of defining a command using Python and
exposing it to the command interpreter that I'm missing?
