   How about moving the C++ part of smoke.exp and smoke.cc to gdb.c++?
   I'm about to provide a patch for the gdb.base suite as the part of the
   test suite merge effort between HP's tree and Cygnus tree, with
   assistance from Stan.  This could be a time we split up smoke.exp.

Does anybody at HP or elsewhere use this file as a smoke test?  I'm
pretty sure nobody at Cygnus does.  The tests are generally redundant,
so you're losing much test coverage by dropping it.  If it really is
useful, then splitting up is OK too.
