Jim, did you see this point?

Err, yes; I just forgot about it.

How about 'maint show {,p}symtab'?  That's consistent with the main
'show' command (which displays information about GDB's state), and has
no conflicting precedent.


`show' is for ``showing [and setting] things about the debugger'' - show remote, show debug. Just ignore `set variable ...'.

info is for ``showing things about the program being debugged]] - info frame, info registers, info symbols

There can be overlap between a `set/show' and `info', but I don't think that occures here.
