Look also what has been done with gdb on windows ( cygwin, mingw). Some
"gdb.exe" should use the same mechanismes like windows debuggers, which wine
supports to some extend. If you get gdb to read the mostly undocumented new
PDB format, this would be a big step. Being able to read wine's format would be a plus.
