Thanks for the recommendation. Too bad that I now need to debug some Python code on Windows (don't ask).

I wonder why it's not possible (yet) to do remote debugging in Python. I mean,
there's remote editing with SFTP/FTP/WebDAV/etc., which many editors support,
and GDB also has gdbserver:


So I think there should be something like that for Python too.

Also thanks to Meir's recommendation of ipdb.

There is no IGLU Cabal! Home‐made Cabals eventually superseded the power and
influence of the original IGLU Cabal, which was considered a cutting edge
development at its time.
