Emacs 23.1 is always an option for those using older GDB releases.  Migrating
properly to GDB/MI is not an easy thing to do and I want to focus on that
rather than on compatibility with old versions of GDB.  Others can work on
maintaining compatibility if they wish but it will make the code a lot more

We used to do that with "--fullname" and "--annotate=3" but that caused
problems when execution was started in the users .gdbinit file.  The two
options are now invoked with separate functions (M-x gud-gdb and M-x gdb).

I wondered what was preventing Jan from using GDB 7.0.
