When a debugger is made, please make it better than the Java debugger
released by Sun :-)

One idea that springs to my mind at least is that you could use a simple
network protocol to provide a non-human-readable debugging interface, and
then the debugger program could connect and control the program using that
protocol. This would have the added side-effect of supporting remote
debugging, which could be useful for instance possibly with ASP.NET. It
would also open the door for multiple debuggers. A debugger like a
simplified version of gdb could be initially released, and later on
debuggers with full realtime source view (like Java's Bugseeker by
Karmira), and debuggers integrated into IDES as well (like most
Borland/Microsoft IDEs), could be built on the same framework.
