OMG, I certainly hope so. The statement that this was an example came from
Wind River who did the initial contribution who also didn¹t care about gdb
(and that¹s stating the situation mildly, but I¹ll leave it at that. #tcf).

to question.

That brings up a bigger point that we¹ve often stated our support for the
GNU toolchain as exemplary. But that¹s clearly not the fact. So many
vendors build commercial product based on the GNU toolchain that it is
probably the most commercialized GPL software in existence. And CDT is
there to properly support products based on it.
