PARAMS removal this weekend

Earlier this week, I posted a patch for removing most occurrences of
PARAMS from the gdb sources.  See:

I have seen no objections to this patch and Andrew has suggested that
I specify a date and time for when this patch goes in.

So at 5:00 pm MST of Saturday, May 27 (which is midnight GMT on Sunday),
I'll tag the repository, do the PARAMS removal on the gdb directory,
and tag it again.  I will use gdb-pre-params-removal-2000-05-28 and
gdb-post-params-removal-2000-05-28 for the tags.  (I'm not sure how
long it will take to do all of this, but I wouldn't be surprised if
it were a couple of hours.)

Rather than relying on the patch posted earlier this week, I'll be
using a script to do the actual PARAMS removal.  The script and some
additional commentary may be found at

If you have any concerns about the PARAMS removal activity, please
let me know as soon as possible.
