Much as I love my GDB command line I can't help but think it's one of those core apps that could do with a step back and re-write. I've looked at the code a few times and it's not pretty which I think makes it a huge learning curve for any wanabe hacker.
Of course it would require some people to actually start that effort. Have you seen any alternatives to GDB? Could this be an area where the monoculture stiffles true innovation in development?
