I am worried about frysk. It seems that the answer to all problems with gdb is "frysk will make gdb obsolete" but the look like they solve completely different problems.
I'm sure it's not deliberate, but it seems that the almost Microsoft-esque tactic of preannouncing something has the same effect - of putting off potential competitors.
There is no good reason that free software cannot produce something of the quality of the wonderful proprietary debugger TotalView but no work is being done in that direction.
