          The remote debugging might help. What you need to do
          is copy a small stub program to the remote machine.
          The stub talks to the IDE (running on the local machine,
          which is either Linux or Windows) through XML-RPC.

          The stub is in pure Python so you can run it
          on HPUX if you have Python available there.

          Though this is kinda slow and I wouldn't recommend
          it if the HPUX box is your main development
          machine. This was intended to debug stuff running
          on a remote deployment machine.
