At first I wanted to say I was blind not seeing it, but then I
realized that this file is not in the tarball, only in the
repository.  So I never found it before.

May I suggest to make it part of the release tarball?

Also, as none of the commands defined on gdbinit are documented in any
shape or form, could you perhaps say a few words about the purpose and
the intended usage of each one of them?  E.g., when to use 'pp' and
when to use 'gdisplay' or 'gwrite' or 'sputs'?  And what are 'pslot'
and 'gslot' good for?
