RE: Thread Support for remote debugging

 I had downloaded the remote protocol
spec from "qqi". The spec was too good
and I was directly able to follow the
"gdbserver" code. Thanks.
  Why is it that the "thread support"
for "remote debugging" has long remained
as a paper issue ? What are the real hurdles
stopping the implementation? How long it would
take to add this support for an architecture, say

I am quite new to GDB internals. I am currently 
reading the "gdbint" manual. 

 If any1 could throw light on the overall
architecture of GDB ( I know itz a sort of
overkill ) and issues involved in enabling
thread support, I would be grateful.

Thank you,

No, there isn't.
