For example, to allow program to update the UI element that represents a
breakpoint. In CDT when a breakpoint is inserted in the UI and fails to be
installed or is only pending the UI element is updated to display that
fact. CDT maintains a map of UI elements to GDB instances+breakpoint
numbers. That connection (UI element to breakpoint number) is made as
result of the response to -break-insert.

The UI elements are breakpoints in a table, or in the margin of an editor.

Does that make sense?
