If you want to work together you have to have a discussion. I appreciate
the bug has been languishing without a response but it pre-dates my
involvement with the OpenOCD package and it's not been as high priority
as getting the package up to date with upstream or dealing with security

If one program is a strict subset of the other in terms of supported
adaptors then it may make sense for the program with the larger support
matrix to split a file out so that the other can take advantage of it.
If the 2 programs support different adaptors then I'm not sure of the
benefit; it becomes extra work on both parts to maintain the overlapping


Avoid GOTOs completely if you can keep the program readable.
