That does seem more intuitive.
Mark, Eli, how do you feel about using both "restart" and "setup"?
While they're the same action in GDB internals, I think they're
different actions from the user's point of view.
I'm not going to rush ahead on this - I feel like I've been trying to
come up with a good name for this command for a year now :-)
