Ok, a couple of quibbles:

This shouldn't be needed with changes below:

MDKind should be an argument to SetCurrentLocation.  IRBuilder should  
not implicitly look it up.

Also, you renamed SetCurrentLocation -> SetCurrentDebugLocation.  Why  
not rename it to "SetDebugLocation"?

We should have an API on instruction that forwards to the MD api:
    Something like: I->AddMD(MDKind, CurLocation);

Most clients should only poke the "Metadata" class when they register  
their MDKind, and they should pass them around as opaque unsigned's.
