Effectively option #2 violates the GPL anyway since, if it's an integral part 
of the app and loaded as a bundle, it's still *required* by the app.   It's a 
legal gray area.
I would recommend you go for option #1 and use lldb.

This list is not really the place to ask for legal advice such as this as none 
of us are lawyers.
