this may be the use case for unix but not for windows. On windows all 
debug messages of *all* running gui applications are merged into one 
output and could only be displayed with DbgView.

Say I am debugging an application with kdevelop and have some other 
applications open. Kdevelop, the debuggee and all open applications will 
print its debug messages to area 0. I can only switch all or nothing
