Even though I understand your hesitations,
I want to say that, for pascal language support, your patch is a
huge step forward: 
  With it I can finally set a breakpoint to both version of ASSIGN
system unit procedure simply by using
(gdb) break ASSIGN
I do get two locations, in two different include files,
which is really great!

Without your patch, I only get whatever GDB finds first...

Thus, I vote for commit ASAP.
