We actually want to kill the current debugging mechanisms as they're somewhat archaic in their current form (they require substantial [and fragile] work on the debugger side, and have a significant runtime cost).  I'd be hesistant to start building anything new on top of what's currently there, but we do want to improve the dev support in JSC itself so we wouldn't say no to any patches in that direction.
