Yes, as Reid says, I'm working on that.

Under DebugInfo/PDB, you'll see an abstract API for accessing PDB symbols.
There's currently one concrete implementation under DebugInfo/PDB/DIA,
which (surprise) uses DIA.  I'm working on a non-API implementation under

My first goal is to get llvm-pdbutil to pretty-print the contents of a PDB
using this Native reader.  From there, I was planning to integrate into
LLDB.  llvm-symbolizer wasn't on my radar, but it makes sense.
