We had a small miscommunication, because on irc he pointed me at an
old thread about redirecting gdb's output -- for which we have
"set logging".

With multiple inferiors I think we could extend the run command in a
few ways.  First, let it support multiple commands in pipeline, as you
suggest.  Second, give gdb a way to run a shell script and have it
trace the shell and all child processes.  (I've long wanted this so I
can just run the wrapper scripts that libtool generates in a build

I have little idea whether either of these is doable in a summer.
