How is it any better to have the code to winkle that stuff out of a

stable, well-known, and thoroughly-supported language like C to a
comparatively unknown, under-specified, moving-target language like
scripting is a win.
The gdb scripts are, by their nature, tied to the kernel, which is
appropriate for crash dump introspection. Random user binaries for
looking at network protocol statistics should not be.
