This provides a more fine grained way of stopping on particular events
than "set stop-on-solib-events", right?

It seems to me that this functionality might occasionally be useful
elsewhere.  However, I wouldn't let that hold you up if you're
attempting to convert over to the generic solib machinery.  It seems
to me that such functionality could be implemented in a generic
fashion (by noticing when a shared library is added to or removed from
the global list), and as such, could be added back at any time.
