This feature exists but there's no docs and the UI is hidden behind an
environment variable.

When starting the debugger, you can include "server=y,suspend=n" in
the agent args. server=y will the debug agent in the runtime to listen
for an incoming connection (instead of trying to connected to an IDE),
and suspend=n will cause it to run the exe immediately instead of
waiting for a debugger to connect.

Then use the "custom soft debugger" to connect to your app:
