Yes, as I said, experimental support exists in Mono SVN and the 2.6
branch. However, it has not been released, and building these things
from SVN on Mac is not for the faint-hearted. For example, due to Mac
security checks, the debugger executable has to be signed by a trusted
certificate before it can access other processes' private memory to
debug them.
