I know of a lot of people who would like to able to use gdb on linux and connect
to an embedded target (mainly MPC8xx) via the wigger.  I think there would be
alot of interest in a linux wiggler device driver.  I am definately interested.
I'm not too keen on a Windows gdb server.  That would require two machines setup
if gdb was to run on linux and gdb-server to run on Win95/98/NT.
