I would be glad to help you with this, but I think that human-proxying gdb
is not the easiest way to do it.  It is quite easy to create a reasonable
facsimile of our environment; in fact, you can purchase a large chunk of it
on CD-ROM for around US$5, and download the rest from a nearby mirror.  All
that is necessary is a server with sufficient bandwidth, and then we can
avoid involving Debian's production servers at all.
