I think it is a bad idea, specially considering that it means that we
have to write more and debug more code than we otherwise would.

There is an easy solution that I mentioned before which is that we can
add support to mcs to generate pdb files instead.  

MCS already uses the API to generate debugging information, the only
difference is that it consumes a Mono-specific API instead of the
cross-platform API.

We did not use the cross-platform API in the past because we did not
have information on how to use it, but now IronPython has code that
shows how to use it.
