And I think that gdb+binutils (that is, the files and directories you get
by checking out that module) should be split into its own repository -
keep those two together, leave other projects to transition or not in
their own time and their own way. (The toplevel configure already
supports --disable-<directory> generically, so with a combined source tree
you can already use --disable-gdb --disable-sim --disable-readline to
build binutils only, or --disable-binutils --disable-gas --disable-gprof
--disable-ld --disable-gold to build GDB only - though simpler aliases
might be useful.)
