[Mono-osx] Mono development on OS X without a debugger? (was Re: Mono on Leopard)

Yes Exactly!

A trace can only _replace_ a debug session for pretty trivial  

Generally, they are separate tools for separate problem domains.

You can make an argument for "making the best out of what we got --  
and what we got is traces!"

This doesn't mean that what we got, ain't much.

I find that I'm writing my code in parallels with sharp develop, and  
then doing longs of finger crossing on mac os x.
