As far as I know, GDB works tolerably well now for 3.0 - it doesn't dump
core for instance :-). I'm just geting in and being clear to people
that think 3.0 C++ support perfect needs to be perfect for 5.1 :-)
One likely reality is that: GDB 5.1 will come out, GCC 3.0 will come out
and then a GDB 5.2 will appear.
