I don't remember the details of the problem, but in general you can't do
this -- you have to pick one meaning for an identifier in an expression.
IOW, it isn't just "print foo" but also "print 23 * foo".
So, instead the solution has to be for gdb's C/C++ expression code to
follow the language rules.
