The files in question are heavily modified and repurposed for
ReBranch. I was under the impression that the tool wanted to
remain a separate project. But if Nan is planning on assigning
the copyright to the FSF, yes. Of course, that'd be super cool,
as that way we could import bits into gdb/gdbserver proper
where it would make sense. (Not that I know which bits would
that be.) Nan, let us know if that's the case.
