Thanks for posting this - I'm sure it will be useful to someone, and
it's also a good test case for GDB performance :-)

I couldn't think of anything.  It's probably the array access and a
pile of symbol lookups that are slowing it down; when I can find time
(no promises, but this was already on top of my todo list) I will try
to speed it up.

The only way you could use it with display today is by defining a
hook-stop macro.  I would like to offer something better involving
integrated Python, but it probably won't happen until next year.
