I tend to agree. I think the current behavior is nice with small
programs, but gets unwieldy with larger ones, or when you have
debuginfo for the system libraries. Also, the delayed symfile hack
would work better with this style of lookup.
Maybe we can try this out at some point. I suspect we might find it
inconvenient in some situations.
