I think it will be handy too (pdb is a bit dated, usagewise). Now it's
up to Nir to create some kind of rpdb2 api we can use.

We will only launch the rpdb2 server and let the user launch winpdb
manually. The idea is to have rpdb2 running inside IPython process
constantly, taking care of all the debugging needs... we can store the
password to _ip.db, so it does not need to be entered every time
IPython is launched.
