Allow guests to start a build or debugging session on the host's behalf #32

Note that developers starting the collaboration session (host) do not have this limitation. It is specific to participants joining a session.

Currently the developer that started the collaboration session (host) is the only one that can trigger a build or start a debugging session. While it provides the owner a high degree of control, the downside of this approach is that guests will be unable to start a build or debug while the owner is away temporarily. We could allow guests to run a build or start a debugging session to solve this challenge.

Def a good idea for tiny sessions, but on 3+ sessions it might be good to let the host disable that possibility through a flag.

This has been resolved in the latest version of VS Live Share 🔥 It’s disabled by default, but the host can now set flags to allow the guest to start debugging as well as run tasks/build. Check out the release notes for more details. Thanks everyone for the feedback!
