There is no plan for that other than that we want to do that at some point :-)

What is the current plan for supporting Microsoft.Scripting.Debugging in IronRuby?  I'd like to implement ruby-debug-base, so I may eventually get to ruby-debug-ide (IR support in RubyMine, woot!).

Could IronRuby perhaps expose an ITracePipeline instance?  That alone* would provide most of the debug functionality needed (set next line, trace callbacks).  Peeking into the scope could easily accomplished using the RubyContext, I think.

Should I open a ticket on CodePlex for this?  I couldn't find anything related using the search.


* Of course, IronRuby would also have to use a DebugContext instance to rewrite the expression trees to make them debuggable, among other things. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a lot of work :) _______________________________________________
