I am curious to know whether you would want to remove this macro in the
future.  I don't mean that you should do it -- just more a question of
what direction to go.  There are other macros like this too:
symfile_objfile, object_files, exec_bfd, ...

Also, I can't remember why I moved core_bfd to the progspace.  Would it
be better to have it just be a member of the target?  Or maybe in your
design these end up being basically equivalent, because core targets are
inherently single-process?
