How about debugging mode? I've seen it appear on several wishlists, but to my
knowing it does not exist in ViM. Does it?
Now, I'm very familiar with ViM, but not with ViM code. I might need some help.
The order of things should be:
1. Collect ideas
2. Choose best ones and set priorities
(2a. Implement in Python or Perl?)
3. Implement in C
Suggestions are most welcome. I'll be starting doing this somewhere in
September. First I have some other stuff to finish, but that gives me (and you)
time to come up with some good ideas.
Input most welcome.

goal is to keep it simple and useful. No bells and whistles, only the things
We probably need to have commands like "step" (execute one command), "next"
(execute one command or function call), "cont" (run until running into a
breakpoint). Displaying status can be done with the normal Vim commands (need
some tricks to display where we are in a file or function).
The hard thing is how to set breakpoints...
