Well, I think that there *ought* not to be any problems with it, but
there may be some aspects of Emacs behaviour that need ironing out in
such setups.

I haven't used gdb-ui.el, so can't comment on that; but as I said with
the calendar there can be, for example, problems with running help
functions in such frames (eg C-h k) - Emacs can have problems
displaying the help buffer.
