Attaching per se isn't really possible because SDB requires the
runtime to be started in soft debugging mode. This is done by starting
the Mono runtime with certain commandline arguments that cause it
either to make a connection to a debugger on the provided IP/port, or
bind to a port and wait for an incoming connection from a debugger.
MonoDevelop uses the former, MonoVS uses the latter.
