It is a can of worms.  I can move the add_thread call in attach_thread easily 
enough, but there are other calls to add_thread strewn about.  For example, 
corelow.c calls add_thread as does infrun.c when it finds a new process.  I 
certainly don't see it being valid for either of these scenarios to 
insert/remove all watchpoints.  My personal preference would be to leave it 
where it is for now.
