[lldb-dev] Mapping XCode lldb releases to lldb project releases.

I'm building an lldb plugin on Mac OS X and Linux using the SB API. This 
means downloading the right headers to build against for the level of lldb 
installed on the machine building the plugin.

On Linux it is trivial to work out which lldb headers to build against, 
you just run lldb -version and use the reported version to find the right 

On Mac OS X the version numbers for the lldb installed by XCode are 
adjusted and they don't relate directly back to the lldb releases released 
on llvm.org.

Xcode recently updated again and rather than find the answer via trial and 
error I was wondering if there is a handy table or rule for mapping the 
output of lldb -version on Mac back to lldb releases?
