Are these things depending on the internal structures of GDB part and 
informations for the executables that is needed to be used under a GIU 
like Lazarus <or Eclipse> ) or is it just a shortcoming of the command 
line user interface of GDB ?

Would it not be more appropriate to enhance GDB itself instead of 
setting up a completely new project. This seems to be a lot less work 
that "reinventing the wheel". I feel that Delphi language is not the 
only language that offers features like or similar to "local procedures, 
widestrings, dynamic arrays, properties". So this effort should be 
supported by the "powers " of GDB.
