I typically use the GDB sourceware bugzilla as my on-going (ever
growing!) task list.  In amongst the bugs, there are enhancement
requests too.  If you have a use for a particular piece of code that
is not yet merged upstream, you could add it as an enhancement
request.  I'm fine with that -- just make sure to mark the Product as:
"GDB", and the component as: "Python".

There are quite a few bits I would like to see merged too.
