Quick followup, for this list.

It was a very "fructueux"(translation:fruitfull ??) session.

The scenario: in HP's environment the dialog between gdb is over the net.

The concerns:  The MI exchange is to verbose and it feels that we can be
more efficient.  a few areas were targeted:

(1) Variables
(2) Registers
(3) Memory

(1) Variables: a solution is to use 
	-var-update *
    instead of doing for each variables.  Old version of gdb would crash
    if you have a mixed of variables object(Register, variable, memory).
    Action: Look at this again for CDT-3.0.

(2) Registers:  possible solutions with the coming of RegisterGroups

(3) Memory:  Possible solutions to use again varobj from GDB, that 
    will send us back the diffs instead of fetching the entire memory block
    at each steps.

to follow this, Sumit will schedule another conf call later.

Many thanks to the HP folks
