As usual, I forgot an item of news that I wanted to impart a second
after hitting 'y'.  For those who follow this type of thing, gdb now has
a python scripting interface.  That is not turned on in this Cygwin
release, primarily because the release was so overdue that I didn't want
to waste time figuring out what I needed to pull into my cross-build

I do hope to have python capability in an upcoming release but it will
probably come after the insight release since I almost have insight
working but haven't started on python.



(Now taking bets as to when the first query about this functionality
will show up here)
