A future gdb interface for this functionality would not require nor give you any new privileges. Probes would be naturally restricted to your processes. No actual writing to the disk files is done.

Systemtap has the same properties w.r.t. the older utrace/uprobes it carries: a root user can operate systemwide, and an unprivileged user can operate upon her own processes.
