I have no real strong opinions -- my purpose was to make sure the
functionality of the upcoming multiple locations patchlet for Python
breakpoints reflected that of GDB. However, seeing (y) in one of
locations of a multiple location breakpoint, even when the main or
parent breakpoint is disabled, does display contradictory
information. I understand the logic of the parent breakpoint
enablement or disablement overriding that of each location, though,
but I also can't help but think it is unclear or ambiguous to the
user when one of the locations says it is enabled when it isn't.
