There's a hidden feature that was intended for testing the debugger.
Set the environment variable MONODEVELOP_SDB_TEST=1 and run MD from
that environment, and you will get a Run->Run with->Custom Soft
Debugger command showing up. It allows you to arbitrarily
connect/listen to a debuggee, and optionally launch the target using a
custom command. I've even used this to debug remote machines.
