That script is a little bit outdated in two ways:
1. Some of the gdb.Frame methods had slight name changes since then;
2. The kludge it uses to create a gdb command tied to a python script is
not necessary anymore, there's a proper command interface now.
But it's a good starting point nevertheless.
