I believe there is a somewhat large pool of people who
- are stuck on an old distro/old GCC, and
- build their own GDB (./configure; make all install), and
- will not be able to use STL pretty printers, unless they are included
in GDB source distribution and "just work", or unless we provide a very
detailed set of instructions (and even then it would probably cut success
rate in half).
