You might consider the fact that the Windows Explorer still disallows
creation of files with a leading dot.
I don't know if this is important for Cygwin users, though.
Also, if you remove gdb.ini, I'd suggest to have a transitional period
where gdb.ini is still supported. Otherwise, users might get mad at
you for breaking their setup.
In any case, please change the docs accordingly (type "i gdb.ini RET"
in an Info reader, to find where it is mentioned).
