I thought the intent was to make it possible to have targets that use
``DOS-based'' filesystems and targets that use Posix filesystems in
the same session.  GDB does support different targets in the same
session, right?

If you want a version that targets only one, then yes, some suitable
change in the macros will do what you want.
