That's interesting, and it's good to see that the gdb maintainers are
thinking about it (the suggested change sounds great to me), but is
such a change likely to happen any time soon?

If not, I guess I've got to play by the old cranky rules...

Anyway, it looks like there's some relevant discussion in the ML
archives so hopefully I can find some tips there (yeah I know I ought to
do that _before_ posting my question... :-)
