lldb formatters

lldb supports "summary providers" which can show a summary for non-POD data types.

Some formatters are provided in Tools/lldb/lldb_webkit.py. To have these always present when debugging in lldb, include this file in your ~/.lldbinit file:

command script import {Path to WebKit Root}/Tools/lldb/lldb_webkit.py

Writing new formatters

New formatters for common types are always welcome. They are not hard to write; see <https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/234062> for an example of one being added.
