FWIW I am writing a mode for gdb that uses these features. It is not in the CVS
repository yet but it is my understanding that it will go in there. IMHO it
works better with gdb than GUD does but, although it may be grand, there is
nothing unified about it i.e it doesn't work with dbx.

This mode, which is based on an earlier file called gdba.el, uses a feature of
gdb called annotations and so could not be adapted for dbx. Gdb could of
course be used on a Sun workstation in conjunction with gcc.
