I would like to restate that primarily I do not know a case when @entry values
are relevant for FEs and therefore for MI. FEs typically rebuild the inferior
for debugging with -O0 -g and therefore @entry values are not present at all.
Maybe one can use Nemiver to investigate some deployed application crash and
in such case I find @entry values important.
