To answer my own question here, it looks like the answer is in the
"set inferior-tty" command that gdb-mi issues at the beginning of the
session.  Alas, that command and what gdb-mi does with it depend on
PTYs being used to communicate with subprocesses, so I think it cannot
work on MS-Windows (which uses pipes instead).
