Yeah, one of the advantages (or not!) of using uiout is that it
allows sharing that code.  But that could be worked around
just by making a special version of that function for MI, but...

Marc is right...  -thread-info is too recent --- it's post-6.8
even.  It's likely that current frontends would get confused with the
column headers, probably mistaking it for a thread entry (my guess, atoi
on the thread num, and calling it thread 0) :-(

This probably includes emacs, so should be easy to try just for fun. :-)
