I've started a merge on current CVS (for some reason gdb-413 seemed to include
everything except the GDB source).  Getting MI output during program execution
seems to be closely related to making GDB asynchronous.  I couldn't attempt
such a task on my own but, using the Apple code as a prototype, it doesn't
look too difficult.  When I have something working perhaps I could put it on a
branch.  It's not something that I'll complete in the next week or so and I
just wanted to outline my intentions.  It will probably only work on the
platform that I've got (GNU/Linux) so maybe someone more knowledgeable than
myself can beef it up to make it general enough for mainline.
