One major benefit of making it a subclass of MCAsmStreamer, however, is that you can run it on a .s file which doesn't have verbose comments in them. I would really like to maintain that ability.

The motivation for this was for the person who gets a random .s file, or even one that they've built themselves, and needs to understand what the EH table means -- people who get an EH bug report and/or those just starting out looking at exception handling but who haven't deciphered the Eh table documentation yet. More the former group than the latter, but the latter can use it as an instructional aide.
This becomes even more important for SjLj EH, since the EH table isn't documented in the same way the DWARF EH table is.
