I'm in favor of implementing this. As I'm sure you know, the GNU
binutils and gdb already support using a single separate file for
But these approaches do not solve all problems. The technique works
well during development for a program which is normally run on the
same system on which it is developed. It doesn't help much when the
program must be run on a different system--it's possible to use
gdbserver, but awkward. And it doesn't help at all when it is
sometimes necessary to debug executables which have been built and
