Maybe everybody will benefit in you boys will do 1 good bicycle instead 
of 3?

I see that Martin, Daniël and Marc are working/worked on one thing - 
debugger for fpc. And now we have 3 implementation based on gdb. + one 
start of native debugger.

And we need:
1. abstraction layer to use gdb or native debugger or any other debugger
2. program interface which can satisfy fpc ide, mse ide, and lazaraus ide

Is that more difficult than fixing/reimplementing already 
fixed/implemented things?

Best regards,
Paul Ishenin.
