Yea, I kinda figured that this would be a huge task. Just trying to express
the impulse I often have of wishing to be able to set a breakpoint in
ipythyon, examine vars, step, continue, etc. It is the tab-completion I like
the most, so the idea of making pdb better is a reasonable route, but like
yourself, time is the issue.

Good idea. I'll do just that.
