Why shouldn't GDB default to setting both breakpoints... like we do
for template functions now? At least, I thought that was the point of
all Vlad's work on breakpoints in the past year. If you want
something more specific you can adjust the multiple-location
I am concerned that we now have too many different places where we
have multiple symbols and breakpoints and we're handling them all
