   I'd kind of like to see gdb.base contain no C++ tests.  There are
   targets out there that don't have a C++ compiler.

Yes, gdb.base shouldn't contain any C++ tests.  I think the main offender
right now is smoke.exp, and I'm wondering if it should be in there at all,
since its purpose in life was for HP to use in their internal process
before doing checkins, and I don't think anybody at HP uses it that way
