[lldb-dev] LLDB support for python scripts in ELF section, like .debug_gdb_scripts in GDB

Has LLDB considered adding per-binary support for LLDB python scripts,
eg. for adding custom type summaries?

This is the equivalent GDB feature

GDB can load a custom python script from either a side-installed file
or an ELF section.  This allows debugging of multiple binaries with
different implementations of the pretty-printer.

Any suggestions for LLDB workarounds would be welcome.
