This convention was agreed to some two years ago when gdbarch and ui-out
were started. True it wasn't added to the gdbint.texinfo file (back
then nothing was being added to that file :-( ) and some of the
discussion may have occured privatly. However, since then, I've never
been presented with a compelling argument to to drop this convention and
start down a new random path.
As for the idea, It is lifted from old UNIX header files.
