I'm not arguing with anything you said, just want to add something I only
now remembered from my Delphi days.

The Delphi debugger allowed you to change values while debugging, then step
back and re-execute that code with new values [I think I did this back in
the days of Delphi 5]. Delphi's debugger was pretty damn awesome - just
makes me realize how crap GDB is (with any other languages than C). And
what is really sad is that I got used to the dismal state of FPC debugging
over the years - moving back to writeln() statements and log files for 90%
of my debugging needs.
