[MonoDevelop] Recommendations for C++ debugging? (haxe projects)

One of the things which is exciting about MonoDevelop is the existing  
support for languages like C# and C++. The C# target for haxe isn't  
completed just yet, but most of NME's targets are compiled using the haxe  
C++ target.

When it builds the project, it turns haxe source code into C++ classes,  
which is then compiled using HXCPP, which handles the C compiler (like  
g++, or vcexpress.exe) to generate a functioning application.

I was curious how (or if) it may be possible to hook into the existing  
support for C/C++ debugging in MonoDevelop somehow? Is there either a way  
to call the C++ debugger from a haxe project addin, or would we need to  
generate a C++ project in order to use these features?

Thanks for any tips or ideas along these lines. It's an interesting  
scenario, because haxe can uniquely generate code in a language other than  
your real source.
