FWIW, GDB has a visualizer system in python - I wrote up some visualizers
for SmallVector, etc, but I couldn't find a way to plug them in for free
into GDB (everything required some reconfiguration of GDB to point to a
script directory or the like). I might check them in anyway with a README
telling people how to set them up if they want to.
