>From an Ericsson perspective, we do have interest in multiple top-level
contexts.  We are not quite there yet, but will need to tackle this problem
in the coming month or two.  So, at least for me, I would appreciate
seeing what you have done for this support.

Integrating this in DSF is another question though, as there is some work
being done there (although it is currently on hold.)  So, I will leave it
to more knowlegeable people than I, to address this question.

Yes, we're working with Ericsson on non-stop and multi-process
debugging.  The usage model is somewhat different than what you're
doing; there will be a single debugger, and a single MI stream.  But
most commands do need to take a thread/process parameter in this new
model and we're still exploring exactly how it will fit together.

(I've nothing useful to say about your actual DSDP questions, but I'll
watch with interest :-)
