I just wanted to post to explain why there have not been any
pretty-printing patches forthcoming.  After feedback from users, we're
changing the way that pretty-printers are looked up.  This should not
take too long to change (I don't have a target date, but Phil is
actively working on it), and I think it is fairly important to get
this in shape before putting the code into gdb.
