I wonder if record/replay and reverse debugging are one and the same feature
from the perspective of inclusion in gdb 7.0?  It seems so from the above?
Logically, they can be separated into at least five parts:

* revexec support in gdb-serial

* reveexec support in MI

* revexec support in the gdb kernel

* record/replay as one way to effect revexec for the case of

* revexec from external sources, such as VMWare, Simics, and other simulators

Which parts of these are currently under consideration for inclusion in the
first 7.0 release?
