Actually it just needs to be a non-zero value for frames in which a varobj is
created. Perhaps a member of struct frame_id, int varobj_frame say, which
increments when a varobj is created in a new frame. This could also then be
used to see if a varobj has gone out of scope to avoid the ambiguities Jim
Blandy talked about from using frame_find_by_id.
Perhaps this is what you are suggesting, anyway.
