SymbolServer is a helper package for LanguageServer.jl that provides information about internal and exported variables of packages (without loading them). A package's symbol information is initially loaded in an external process but then stored on disc for (quick loading) future use.

Creates a new symbol server instance that works on a given Julia depot. This symbol server instance can be long lived, i.e. one can re-use it for different environments etc. If `path_to_store` is specified, cache files will be stored there, otherwise a standard location will be used.
Loads the symbols for the environment in `environment_path`. Returns a tuple, where the first element is a return status and the second element a payload. The status can be `:success` (in which case the second element is the new store), `:canceled` if another call to `getstore` was initiated before a previous one finished (with `nothing` as the payload), or `:failure` with the payload being the content of the error stream of the client process. This function is long running and should typically be called in an `@async` block.
