Constant folding support for arithmetic on target types would be nice to
share, rather than the GDB kludges of using host floating point types as a
bad approximation to target types and duplicating floating point format
handling code for GCC and GDB. But it would also be desirable to make
more use of MPFR in GCC for this in place of its own code, so sharing with
GDB would introduce a probably unwanted MPFR dependency to GDB (and in due
course an MPC dependency for complex arithmetic as well), and any move of
GCC code to C++ would also make sharing harder unless GDB also moves.
