FWIW you can just directly feature-test for the things you know you need.
Like: if not hasattr(gdb, 'parse_and_eval'): ...
In this case, 7.1 is old enough that it probably doesn't matter.
For newer things, though, it is better to feature-test because distros
sometimes forward-port patches, so the version number isn't a reliable
