Might not require two GdbAgents just one that is matching against multiple sets of regular expressions and calling the right routine based on the prompt it finds.

And following the suggestion in http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?ruby+live+process+introspection for Ruby, what would helpful would be to define some gdb macros specific for the given language, much in the way that assembler macros were defined for Intel x86.

It would be nice (but perhaps difficult) to debug programs written partly in a scripting language, partly in C++.

For example, when Perl is extended by a Perl extension module implemented in a dynamic library, it would be extremely cool to single step straight through from the Perl code to the C code and back again.

This would probably require 2 instances of GDBAgent, one for each language. The integration would be tricky.
