Yes, the GDB stubs will get you complete remote control via GDB, either
the CLI or GUI versions.

The main difference, at this time, is that CygMon provides a CLI which
can be used without involving GDB.   For some, this is important.  For
those developing eCos applications and using GDB for debugging, it doesn't
matter at all.
