Yeah, but in April? Ick.

It is. We already handle it fairly well in our pdebug protocol but I think
what you're talking about would be very handy. We used to monkey around
with the data a lot more than I do now since gdb is pretty good at knowing
what the target is and dealing with the registers. I think the place where
it would be really useful for us is in marshalling and unmarshalling our
pdebug stuff. We could probably simplify a lot and remove some assumptions.
