Wow, great!
I wonder if also mcs should start supporting dwarf debug symbols, so
that we could optionally debug with IL code or with C# code.

I think I read somewhere that the pdb format used by microsoft is
undocumented (and kept so because they want to be able to change it
without breaking applications: they porovide a dll to access the data).
So it's completely useless for us.

Probably the ECMA guys should start thinking about this (if they haven't
already) and setup a working group to propose changes to the upcoming
dwarf-3 standard to support IL and C# code:

lupus@ximian.com                             Monkeys do it better
