Thanks! I have committed this patch.

Given that from an Ada programer's perpective, there is nothing special
about this name, so I do not think so. I checked the Ada part of the
manual, and it didn't say that we were not supporting these breakpoints.
So I think we're good.
As stated earlier, I am open to further adjustments if it makes
it easier to deal with the quotes... This could prepare the ground
before Keith's patch comes in, rather than after. I just don't know
enough of Keith's patch yet to be sure which approach to take.
