Hi Stan,

Sorry for the late reply, your message got lost in a bunch of
demangler issues :(

I guess by the people doing the reviewing deciding to use it.
It may be it is useful even with only a subset of reviewers
using it.  I can't determine this myself, I need feedback from
people who are reviewing regularly.

There's work underway to transfer glibc's trial instance to
sourceware.org, and I've asked for the GDB instance to be
moved at the same time.  Apart from anything else, it's probably
easier that way.
