Remote pdb

Hello everyone..

I've hacked and a little bit to allow remote
debugging of python applications. I'm using it in a project
I'm working on, but may be useful for somebody else, so I've
put it at:

To use it, just initialize it with something like:

rpdb.init(('localhost', 5670))

and then telnet to the specified address. When the debugger
is activated (with, rpdb.set_trace(), or anything
else) it will communicate with the connected client instead of
the standard (in|out)put. If there's no clients connected,
it will wait for someone to connect. If you drop your connection,
it should wait for another connection.

If you don't run the rpdb.init() function, or follow it with a
rpdb.kill() call, these modules *should* work like the builtin

There's no authentication or anything like this. Be
careful. You know, no warranties, etc... ;-)
