I know you are on to that C++ thing and ending up returning a reference
to make it an lvalue.  Which I very much don't like (please, if you go
that route add _set functions and lower the case of the macros).

What's the other advantage of using inline functions?  The gdb
annoyance with the macros can be solved with the .gdbinit macro
defines (which might be nice to commit to SVN btw).
