Yeah, the choice of name for 'gdb.post_event' was unfortunate.
I think a change to the docs making it clear that post_event and the
event mechanism are unrelated would be good.
I wouldn't even mind if it mentioned the CLI or accepting input or
something, as long as it also mentioned that we may expand it to run
at other times as well in the future.
