RFC: Obsolete TUI _before_ 5.1?

Up until now I've been of the opinion that the TUI should be left alone 
until after 5.1.  Given that I've dragged my feet on 5.1, I'm thinking 
that the question should be re-considered.

The person I'm really interested in hearing an opinion from is Stephane 
since he played with the TUI a little and got it to build.  Stephane, do 
you think that the TUI is salvageable or that a re-implementation would 
be better.

One thing to keep in mind is that we're (I'm?) trying to reduce the 
number of interfaces into GDB core with ui-out/ui-file and ``libgdb'' 
becomming the only interfaces.  For the TUI to survive it would need a 
major rewrite anyway.
