This makes sense, and "python -m pdb" is also the recommended usage on
most resources I've been able to find.  On the system I'm on now, the
pdb command is missing.

But I think it's nice to user the shorter version when it's available,
so I suggest to use "python -m pdb" only as a fallback.

Please see the attached patch which does that.
