I'm kind of creeping on it now, mostly looking at symbol table code to 
get an idea of what to change. From the user point of view, it seems 
pretty natural to extend the source-and-line concept to be 
program-and-source-and-line with lots of defaulting, just as line number 
alone has an implicit source file.

My chicken scratchings on paper tend to encourage the introduction of a 
fully general many-to-many mapping between inferior processes and 
objfiles, but I don't yet know if that is overly ambitious for this 
round of hackery.
