For what its worth, I can't speak to the level of criticality of 
process record and replay, but we would really like to see this in 
the 7.0 release.  

I am almost ready with the Eclipse support for it (I manually 
applied the patches to GDB) and plan on doing a demo at EclipseCon.  
From what I was told, reverse debugging generates a lot of interest 
in people and would be a great addition to GDB.

Great work on the whole Reverse Debugging feature and
Process Record and Replay!
