[RFA 0/9] Radically simplify the complaint system

I must confess, I've long disliked the complaint system.  It got in
the way a little bit, ages ago, when I tried to multi-thread the
psymtab reader.  And, it got in the way a bit more during one of my
attempts to format the "Reading symbols" output more nicely (spoiler:
I have another approach to this in the works, but I took this detour
first).  Aside from these things, the code also seemed unusually
complex for the task it performed.

This series radically simplifies the complaint system.  It removes
most of the code -- which, I think, has never really been used.

Tested by the buildbot.  I also locally tested complaints.exp with
each patch in the series.
