I found it quite easy to fit the ruby debugger into kdevelop, which was based 
to the C++ debugger code. It communicates via a Unix domain socket, so it 
wouldn't be too difficult to change to use a tcp socket to do debugging on 
another machine. It could be refactored so we could share more code amongst 
different debuggers perhaps. I don't think it's worth designed a language 
independent protocol for remote debugging like Komodo uses - that would be 
more trouble than it's worth.
