Cute.  I guess it needs the pydebuginfod binding too, which is
somewhere else.  I wonder if a less engineered variant could be even
shorter.  For each debugger event hook of interest:

  - subprocess run  "/usr/bin/debuginfod-find debuginfo /path/to/module"
  - collect its stdout, validate as existing file name
  - submit it to the debugger "target symbols-add {file}" (lldb)
