And as a back-in-the-fold mobile developer, the lack of a debugger is 
making me crazy. I've been doing mostly desktop work for a long time and 
I'd forgotten how tedious it is to debug on a mobile device. It 
literally takes 10-15 minutes to test a change after all the insertion 
of "answer" or logging commands and rebuilding and installing and 
testing. Even so you still have to guess what was wrong, hope you put 
logging into the right handlers, and then repeat the process all over 
again. And again.

I'll be pledging to this one, and I sure hope enough other people do 
too. It would cut my development time to about a quarter of what I spend 
now.
