AFAIK (and as far as I can see) the original is geanygdb and Alexander's
one is geanydbg. OK, it's a bit confusing, but it's at least not the same ^^
But I agree, changing the name to something more different would be
better I think.

On the plugin itself, I haven't tested it yet but it seems interesting
(though, I'm used to gdb on CLI...), and the UI seems more comfortable
to me than geangdb's one (but again, I never tested it...).
