I should have mentioned that this is not happening that soon. We have
come a long way from the monolithic GDB program, but there is still
a bit of work to do and there is no funding for that at the moment.
This library was the central part of my parallel debugger, PGDB, which
I start to develop while a grad student at Univ. of Toronto circa 1993.
I have been trying to get a pure libgdb library done ever since. ;-)
