I don’t think that would be a problem for me. 
The original script in LLDB does not have a specific license, so I guess the general LLDB license [1] (Apache 2.0) would apply to that file. From what I understand that would be OK for GDB but I don’t know a lot about these things. 

I’ll get started !
