  Post Cygnus, DejaGnu has never had any funding, and working on it
rarely got any support from management or clients. It's been relying on
volunteer labor for over 20 years... I totally understand GDB developers
extending things for GDB as the most efficient way to get their job
done. But while there is some activity, it'd be nice to migrate those
improvements where possible to DejaGnu for the next release. Thanks for
being open to getting this cleaned up sooner than later.
