I hadn't thought of that. It seems insufficient to me, though. Suppose
that "break probe:something" matches both a probe named "something" and
a function in the executable "probe". In this case, the breakpoint will
have to match both locations (due to the spec I'm implementing), but in
a way the locations would have very different meanings.
