I've been working on a Python debugger of my own, and having briefly
tested it with 2.3a0, I'm nothing but delighted with the results.  It
fixes a number of minor niggles - stopping twice on block-start lines,
stopping on 'def' lines and stopping on docstrings, to pick some
random examples.

This would be very nice too!
