Not completely: we have the "hbreak" command, for example.
If you meant to tell that even "break" sometimes sets a hardware
breakpoint, then I agree that it's an internal GDB matter, but if
those are the cases you refer to here, there's no need to explain at
length what hardware breakpoints are, just make a cross-reference to
the "Breakpoints" node, where the detailed explanation should live.
