There is a patch on SourceForge
which allows pdb to read/write from/to arbitrary file objects. Would it
answer some of your concerns (eg remote debugging)?

The patch probably will not apply to the current code, but I guess, I
could revive it  if anyone thinks that it's  worthwhile...

What do you think?
