He was overtaken by other commitments.

Proceduraly or technically?

Proceduraly, the first thing to do is get the GDB community to agree on 
the protocol extension.

Technically, the first thing to do would be the same - without that 
agreement you run the (real) risk of implementing a protocol extension 
that isn't accepted into the GDB source tree.
