The GCC steering committee doesn't control binutils, gdb, or cygwin. It
has been discussed in the gdb and binutils mailing lists but no one
seems too enthusiastic about actually making the split.
One advantage of splitting is that we could make a single bfd and
libiberty repository shared between gcc/binutils/gdb/cygwin. I guess
the steering committee would have to be involved in that decision.
