I've been assigned to review this patch, but I confess I'm a little
murky on what problem it's trying to solve.  Can you explain what I
need to do to recreate the problem?

There's also this comment on the Wiki (not sure why it wasn't posted
to the mailing list...): "Dave Page says: This doesn't work with the
edb-debugger plugin, which is the only such plugin around AFAIK. It
needs to ignore comments on the PLUGINS line, and handle multiple
targets (plugin_debugger, pldbgapi, targetinfo etc). Not sure if we
want that complexity though."  Any comments?
