btw. What's the situation for the 'Scope' plugin?
e.g. Is this working / in active development?
I saw Dimitar's post about this, but didn't get a chance to try this out 
yet, but this sounds interesting.
Sounds like this aims to address some of the issues I can see with GUI 
integrated debugging, in particular the possibility to still interact 
directly (and to some extent 'properly') with gdb.
(If I recall correctly, the debugger plugin doesn't attempt do this, and 
geanygdb seemed to have problems if you typed stuff in to it's terminal.)
