Someone is sponsoring me to implement that, it should land in the SVN 
before Oct 6th.

There is already some code in the SVN. The pdb support will work only 
when Cecil is running on Microsoft's .net framework. On Mono, Cecil will 
use the mdb file format.

For the moment you can read and write back a pdb file, only the local 
variables infos are not written back. On the mdb side, you can only read 
them for the moment.
