Hello Alex,

I've been working on a command line interface to Mono's soft debugger
> recently; I call it sdb-cli. It's going to be very similar to gdb and
> .NET's mdbg. It currently depends on Mono.Debugger.Soft from the Mono
> repository, and NRefactory/Mono.Debugging.Soft from MonoDevelop. The
> latter two are used for expression evaluation and a higher-level
> interface to the soft debugger.

I just tried it for the first time, here are some thoughts:

* Could we get a prompt?
* Could we turn down the verbosity of it?
* Could we make the command line language closer to GDB than a new language?
* Not obvious how to start a program and set a breakpoint
* Not clear what Init is for
