Oh duh. Of course. I had overlooked the Android permission. Just in 
case, I also added internet and TSNet to the inclusions. Are those 
necessary too? I'm thinking probably not.

So I ran my test stack again and was blown away. This is one of the 
coolest and most needed features we've had in a very long time. In my 
current project I need to get the text of a long error result and was 
about to write an ftp handler so I could move it out of the Android 
sandbox to a place where I could access the text. Now I don't have to, I 
can just get it from the debugger. This is amazing.

I'd suggest that documentation make it clear what permissions and 
inclusions need to be set up. I'm not sure I'd make the permission 
automatic, since the final standalone may not want that permission set 
and the developer will probably forget to unset it, especially if they 
didn't know it was turned on in the first place.
