Assuming one decides to print all breakpoints, either move the
control for source/frame printing into bpstat_print or pull
the loop in bpstat_print into normal_stop().
Also, in the case of pc breakpoints, there's no need to print the
source line for each one. Printing that only once would be fine.
[maybe "printing" it multiple times would confuse programs parsing
You might even want to do a preprocessing pass and sort them.
Since bpstat_print wants to stop when it wants the caller to print
the source location (Vega, right smack dab in the middle, but I digress),
maybe the thing to do is print all non-pc-breakpoints first, then
all pc-breakpoints last, defering the source location to the last
Maybe the preprocessing pass would be where `print_it_done' is handled
and nothing is printed, even if other breakpoints want to be printed.
