Thanks for pointing out the conditional breakpoints, I hadn't looked at 
They can be abused well enough -- I don't think I can inject a "return;" 
but I can certainly fiddle with things.

I'd like to be able to expose the breakpoints to the scripting environment,
don't need to save it to a file if I can expose JSON to js.

I'll keep an eye out for the debug extension facility.
I'm happy with the progress webkit inspector has made.
