The SB API's were designed to be binary stable API's when used either from C++
or Python (the latter are just a SWIG-ified version of the former.) So just
like the Python wrapper, with the exception that you might call an API that
some older version of liblldb doesn't provide, Greg's adaptor wouldn't be
sensitive to lldb library version.
