Just the debugger side, I expect - well, it might be in how something
is now emitted, but I haven't had time to track it down.

I'd like to request that this change not go in yet.  I've been working
intensely on fixing DWARF2 support in GDB over the past few weeks, and
I'm starting to make a little headway - but anyone who has tried it
lately with a recent GCC will realize that it's got a long way to go. 
It's practically unusable, which means that this is not a reasonable
time to switch.
