IMO, it's not nice to change the package semantic in such radical ways
behind users' backs.  I know a few people who like the current "M-x gdb" 
and will not be pleased to see the GUI version instead.

How about if we modify "M-x gdb" to invoke gdb-ui if a certain option
is set?  Whether this option should be on or off by default, is
another matter, but at least users will be able to control what UI
they get by flipping a single option.
