  Description     : Attempt to reimplement LLVM's FileCheck using Python.

Many software projects could benefit from a suite of LLVM LIT integration
tests. The problem is that you have to build FileCheck from LLVM sources
which is not a trivial task for 1) people who are not familiar with the
LLVM infrastructure and 2) Python-based projects that would prefer to not
have to build anything from LLVM's source code in their CI process.

The option of having pre-compiled binaries is a workaround, but we don't
like to keep third-party binary artifacts in source code

This is a B-D for #1052439
