That's not true.  Here's a random example of a GDB command definition:

    c = add_cmd ("directory", class_files, directory_command, _("\
  Add directory DIR to beginning of search path for source files.\n\
  Forget cached info on source file locations and line positions.\n\
  DIR can also be $cwd for the current working directory, or $cdir for the\n\
  directory in which the source file was compiled into object code.\n\
  With no argument, reset the search path to $cdir:$cwd, the default."),

What is that if not a doc string?
