But I now see I've not been the first to tread in this area. In ddd
there is a pydb directory which is where pretty much what I was
proposing has been done before. A couple observations about that

First, I missed this because there was no effort to *install* pydb.py
and the support programs.

Second, the code looks pretty old (circa 1998 with small modifications
in 2001), supporting python 1.x whereas there are those who considier
anything before python 2.2 ancient and it probably is.

So in sum it looks like what needs to be done is to just update this 
for current python releases.
