[lldb-dev] Target changes for Language Runtimes

Would adding a ModulesDidLoad equivalent to the base of LanguageRuntime be acceptable, for instance? 

Then It's just a matter of looking up the respective language plugin and calling that, very similar to what's there already for ObjC.

Hey folks,

So I added the initial part of the RenderScript language plugin which 
went smoothly. In that review I stated it would be initialized along the 
same lines of ObjCLanguageRuntime. Now, my initial thought was along the 
lines of the attached patch - in Target::ModulesDidLoad, call a function 
to see if any modules match a renderscript pattern, if so, enable the 

However, this then requires including the plugin headers within 
target.cpp, which isn't ideal. ObjC has a base class header actually in 
the target project space, so uses that. Are there any views on how to 
make this a bit more generic, to allow for other Language Runtimes to 
detect applicability on module-load?
