I've been working on such a feature, although I haven't been able to
devote much time to it recently.

I hope to be able to support thread debugging on Solaris but not Linux;
unless there is a Linux package equivalent to Solaris'

Support for Solaris 2.5 is iffy;  not all Solaris 2.5 machines are
equal in this area.  Solaris 2.5 will not support all the features
I have in mind, but should be able to support Callum's request to
switch between threads while in a breakpoint.

When I have something I think is ready for a pre-beta release I'll
make arrangements with Rod and Ian for distribution.
