Sure, but it probably will not make a difference.

I worked more than a week to prepare a large set of changes,
each set with its own individual explanation, and sent them
all to the cygnus folks when asked (before gdb-4.17) and the
whole batch has aparently been ignored.  Very disappointing!

I see no point in sending changes if they are ignored.
