I agree people would normally just want to run either C++ or Java debuggers,
but I think we ought to allow for running both at the same time. If a debugger
is connected to a 'set breakpoint' signal, it should check to source file
suffix on receipt of the signal ( '.java' vs '.cpp') and only set the
breakpoint if the filetype is appropriate.

Should there be a mechanism for ensuring tab names are unique? For example, a
number in brackets after the name, like kwrite if you have the same document
open more than once. Or an optional suffix could be provided along with the tab
name. Then you would insert 'Watch' with suffix 'java', if there was no
existing 'Watch' tab it would appear as 'Watch', otherwise 'Watch (java)' to
distinguish it. Similarly menu names might need some sort of name uniquing
