Careful now - not all things are possible with MI.

And I suspect any speed diff has nothing to do with running MI. Certainly gdb 
doesn't run any faster and that is the main bottleneck with performance. (I 
could be wrong of course :-)

But I have no problems with it changing in a small or big way. In fact I'd say 
it's great someone wants to put their ideas and energy into it and make it 
their own.

As the old maintainer, I'm still listening on email, so don't be too mean 
about my code :-) and feel free to ask question about why I did things the 
way I did.

Have fun with it
