I'm not sure how involved I'm going to be, so go ahead and rewrite it.
The next time I submit some code, I will do the paperwork.

One question: do you know if there are going to be any more GDB 7.5.x
releases or will the next release be 7.6? It would be nice if this
change and your changes supporting the new load commands could be in
the next version of GDB, whatever that ends up being. If there's going
to be a 7.5.1, I'm happy to backport the changes to the 7.5 branch.
I'll probably be making a patch to 7.5 for the homebrew
(mxcl.github.com/homebrew) formula anyway.
