"target record" is the real command.
"record" is a command call "target record". I want it to be the alias
of "target record"
"rec" is a alias of "record".

What about change "@code{record}" to "@code{target record}"?

What about add this:

* Process record and replay

  Record inferior execute log and replay it.
