The comments talk about C++03 (presumably due to the gdb heritage of
this code), but gcc's minimum requirement is for C++98.

Does this code work with C++98?  If so, presumably this comment should
state that (presumably by just writing "C++98 or C++03" wherever you
say "C++03").

[...snip...]

Could the patch add a set of selftests for the new code?  (e.g. assert
the number of times that a destructor is called, for various test
classes in various situations).  This would also give a handy way to
run the pertinent code relatively quickly under valgrind (via "make
selftest-valgrind").

I'm not a global reviewer, so treat these as suggestions.

Hope this is helpful
Dave
