I just diffed 7.1 vs 7.2, and grepped for things like

  grep "add_" ... | grep  "cmd"

I've documented in the wiki the new commands that are missing an
entry in news or in the manual.  Here's a copy of what I placed there:

    * Missing in NEWS:
          o [Stan]: Tracepoint source strings, observer mode, corresponding commands and packets. $_thread.

          o [Joel]: $_thread.


          o set|show record memory-query. 
    * Missing in NEWS and manual:
          o record pic
          o set|show record pic
          o set record pic hide-nofunction
          o set record pic hide-nosource
          o set record pic hide-sameaddr
          o set record pic type


It appeared to me that for most commands and features there are already
patches pending, except for "set|show record memory-query", if I'm not mistaken.
Hui, what's the status of that patch?

I've also diffed remote.c in both trees, and confirmed that all new
packets are either already mentioned in NEWS, or the patches pointed at
above already take care of mentioning them.

Joel, I think you missed that Stan had already documented $_thread
in his patch.  I've no idea if both descriptions could be merged so
we end up with a better description, or whether one of them ends
up redundant.
