RFC: shipping llvm-lit

Hi all,

   LLVM's test suite is very flexible and many people use it when building tools on top of llvm and clang (I've used lit for 3 llvm-based projects). I personally find it a disadvantage not to be able to run my third party tests when building against LLVM binaries.

   Would it make sense to provide a patch to install llvm-lit?

Many thanks,
Vassil

A standalone lit is available here: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/lit
