And I think that gdb+binutils (that is, the files and directories you get 
by checking out that module) should be split into its own repository - 
keep those two together, leave other projects to transition or not in 
their own time and their own way.  (The toplevel configure already 
supports --disable-<directory> generically, so with a combined source tree 
you can already use --disable-gdb --disable-sim --disable-readline to 
build binutils only, or --disable-binutils --disable-gas --disable-gprof 
--disable-ld --disable-gold to build GDB only - though simpler aliases 
might be useful.)
