You'll be amused to hear about four ESIEE hackers have made this
a summer project of some sort. They asked a bunch of us what would
be a good hppa project and GDB landed on top with a loud thud.
I don't know the timeframe, but Thibaut can explain after he
sleeps off his friday night partying (CET). ;^)
My impression was this was a *paid* summer project, 6 weeks or so,
and they would get graded on it. I think the main goal was to get
(nearly) everything upstream.

yes - and thanks for doing that.
