Without wanting to get into a lengthy discussion, I have to disagree with this:
keeping things modular is important, and one of the cleanest ways is keeping
dependencies single directional whenever possible. Modularity may not be the
goal of keeping things modular, but extensibility and maintainability are.
Yes, Vladimir correctly pointed out - my argument about reducing the code
size is not really a good one...
I still think the patch is useful, if for no other reason, to keep
dependencies single directional (mi -> gdb).
That's the part I don't think is useful. The dependencies shouldn't
be single-directional; I don't see why we should keep MI out of the
rest of GDB.
Ok, I got into the 'lengthy discussion' mode, but I quickly deleted what I
started typing (about functional interface in gdb, MI using it blah blah...)...
