Really?  And those GUD sessions don't all use the same debugger?
Which debuggers do they use?

The problem is (among a few others) that each sessions makes global changes.
E.g. `gud-def' redefines globally the text sent to the underlying debuggers.

I'd rather keep as many entries in gud-menu-map as possible, and simply make
them invisible when the debugger doesn't support them.  This will ensure
better consistency between the various debuggers supported.
