Hi Brent, I've been working on making this easier for developers but
admittedly spent more time on feature implementation than launching.
Let me address these as best I can.

I think the scripts are going to be the way to run things (similar to
run-safari), I'll take a look at what you have attached to the
bugzilla bug and that might be the way to go.
In the future we would like to bundle a built version of Drosera with
the nightlies just like we have on Mac, but currently that is not

For debugging purposes, I made Drosera open a shell when run in debug
mode (you can dump to it via printf's in Drosera's code). If you run
the Release version it should not appear.
Yes, Drosera does not currently have the attach option that it does on
Mac. If you start Safari on Windows (use a revision after 28197 for
stability) Drosera should connect to it automatically and if you load
a page in Safari you should see the source showing up in Drosera.

The start, pause, resume, step over, Show Console, etc buttons were
created on Mac via Interface Builder and are not cross-platform. For
the sake of simplicity and speed of development I implemented these in
the windows "Debug" menu in Drosera. In the future I would like to
the buttons cross-platform automatically.
