I think the effort should be to make a simple to use debugger integrated in the notebook interface itself. One should not have to use 2 different and separate programs to debug some code.
A simple and easy to use but powerful debugger with line numbers! like that which exist in a product called M____B will go a long way to making Mathematica easier to use for common users. Most students do not like to use Mathematica because it is hard to debug code in it.
All what WRI needs to do, is just look at the M____B debugger, and make one like it which is buildinto the notebook. Not a new and separate program. That is all. I have been waiting for such a debugger for years. I do not think WRI really understand this issue much and how important it is. I still use Print[] to debug my Mathematica code, which is so 1970's thing to do now.
