What happens if you try debugging several programs at the same time
using the MI client?  I just tried that in Emacs 25.0.91, and it seems
to work for me; in particular, I see 2 instances of GDB running under
Emacs.  So I wonder what doesn't work for you.

Also, latest versions of GDB support debugging multiple programs
inside the same GDB session; not sure if this helps you.

I think we should avoid developing gud-gdb if gdb-mi.el provides a
reasonable solution for the same use case.  So let's first try to
figure out of "M-x gdb" could work for you, and try fixing it if it
