You can already override the %run magic command through ipapi
(IPython/ipapi.py), by using expose_magic().

We could look into exposing various hooks to allow plugging in
different levels of debugging support. The current debugger support is
pre-ipapi stuff and too "wired in" for it's own good, but if we can
clean ip up through hooks and other extensions mechanisms (as opposed
to wiring in more stuff), so much the better.
