[lldb-dev] Anybody using the GUI?

From what I can tell the main thing this is missing is a Console window.  I imagine hosting a full console window inside a ncurses sub window would be a pain if there isn't a pre-built widget for that.  But maybe it would be easier to open another terminal window and connect the debuggers I/O channels to that console.  We already know how to open another terminal - we use that for the "launch in a separate terminal".  So you could reuse that.  That might be a cheap way to fill in the main missing piece.
