In my opinion we should very much make the gdb-ui code the default.
As for keeping support for --fullname, I believe it's needed as long as the
gdb-ui code isn't as robust as the --fullname one.  I'm not sure what is the
current state of affairs, but I've had to switch to --fullname because of
minor problems at least once in the last year.

Of course, I didn't file a bug report about it: that would have been too
easy, right?  More seriously, I simply had no time at that moment and
couldn't reproduce it afterwards.

I'm not sure what's the reason for gdb-ui's historical instability, but
I suspect it's due to the interface between gdb and gdb-ui (the --annotate-3
annotations).  I hope GDB/MI is better.  Unless the problem is directly in
GDB's own instability.
