I wonder if it would be useful to add something like this to the GDB
tree.  Maybe not this specific implementation, but something with the
same purpose.  Put a python wrapper on it and ... cool.  OTOH, it'd be
sort of like the new python scripting support but inverted (python
<--> gdb instead of gdb <--> python, if that makes any sense).

Is it lamentable that we have both gdbmi and (soon) a real scripting
interface with no real commonality?  Just thinking out loud ... I
don't have an answer.
