Should DejaGnu eventually support GDB's MI mode, possibly in another module?

Would this be for GDB's own testing, or for something else?

The intent was (future) use of GDB as a tool within DejaGnu as part of tests for something else. Probably as a remote channel type, possibly with both transfer and control capabilities.

GDB already has MI testcases driven by dejagnu.  Most live under 

We don't have an actual TCL MI parser though, MI testing is mostly

That might be a good thing for GDB: an MI parser would be another possible source of bugs, while the tests for MI itself really need to test MI, not their own parser.
