This will work for code that we can directly modify, and in this
particular case, I think it would be great to get these patches into
vbnc, as that way we could get VBNC debugging once it bootstraps on

The pdb to mdb transformation tool that Robert wrote has the advantage
that we can use with proprietary compilers and for existing binaries
that ship with a pdb, but no source.

I agree;   Could you file a bug report with this patch, so we do not
forget about it?   I know Martin -which would review this patch- is
currently busy with a few other bugs.
