No doubt, but I don't like using the toolbar for debugging.  Partly this is
personal preference (I tried for a while, then just stopped), but there are
also many common debugging situations where I think _most_ people (at least
those not terminally infected by windows debuggers) would use the
command-line, or at least have the gdb command buffer visible: for instance,
when you're not hitting `step / step / step', but rather `step / grovel
around in data / step / grovel around in other data / etc'.

Since the new graphical debugging stuff appears to be enabled by default (at
least, it pre-stuffs the gdb command line with the options to turn it on), I
think at the least, it ought not screw up traditional gdb-in-emacs usage.

Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it
has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
