New stream - gdb_stdlog/gdb_stddebug?

At present GDB has two output streams:


I'd like to propose the addition of a third stream:

	gdb_stdlog OR gdb_stddebug

that would be used by any debug/log messages.

At present debug information is somewhat arbitrarily sent to either the
stdout or the stderr stream.  The intention here is to rationalize this
so that it is clear where any (non output) messages should go.

Anyone see any problems with this?  Any better names?
