GUD used to hide such flags and then was changed to try and show
them instead.  The reason why it was changed to show them, is so that it
can be made to work with unusal ways to start the debugger.  E.g.

  make run cmd="gdb --i=mi foo"

if you don't make the flag explicit, then you have to guess where to
add it in the command the user has just typed (in the above case the
user would have then typed

  make run cmd="gdb foo"

which makes it difficult to figure out where to place the --i=mi.
