I don't know what I will find about LLDB.  I don't know what
conclusions I will reach about it.  So I can't say anything concrete
about it now.

Installing that change would be favorable for Emacs, probably just a
little.  It would probably be bad for GDB, but I have no idea how
much.  Refusing to installing it would be a statement with some
significance, but I don't know how much.  I can't tell whether
it is good or bad to install that change.

Despite this uncertainty, I can say something general about what we
should do.  We should do what is best for the GNU system's goal of
giving the users freedom.  This means considering what is good for
Emacs and what is good for GDB, to make a decision.  Then the whole
GNU Project should do what is best.  That is the responsibility of
each GNU package maintainer.

If GNU packages do not support each other, it will be easier
for many of them to fail.
