Well, in that regard, I think that this thread will be better if
it waits a week or two after gdb 6.0 is released.

Sure. QA is a means.
However, my opinion is that "more QA" is a critical factor for
improving the gdb user experience.
If you look at the mailing lists and gnats database, there's a lot
more requests that fall under "expand scope of existing stuff"
and not much "this feature would be nice". For example, many C++
programmers would like "break Foo::Foo" to work.
