I see.

I did not  expect that someone would be inclined to go  this way, as you 
need to implement the (published but rather "internal") gdb<->gdbserver 
pipe protocol, and additionally you need to do the arch-dependent 
interpretation in your own software rather than have gdb do this and 
provide the results via it's well-understood command line pipe interface.

But obviously you did have good reasons to do so. (Can you provide a 
short explanation, why ?)

What kind of interface does "AVR ONE!" provide ? Does it come with a 
gdbserver type of "driver" on the PC ?

BTW.: can you say anything regarding the PIC32 debugging issue ?
