This option will be even better soon. Once kaffe has JPDA support
and, in particular, a command line debugger, gud mode and kaffe will be
an excellent way to go for mouse haters like myself.
I am making progress on JPDA for kaffe, but it's been slow going.
I have single stepping going, and some very limited breakpoint
support. I started out putting a command line interpreter in VM
itself (since I really wanted to see single stepping work ASAP), but
have recently ripped out that code and have been working on doing
proper JDWP. Once I have that beast implemented I can start getting
more real features going. Just an update so that no one thinks I was
kidknapped by Sun ;-)
