I'm not a Nemiver developer, but I've followed its development. I'd like
to add that people don't need to be too worried that this debuggers is
not part of an IDE:

- Dodji and co. are developing abstractions around gdb (and potentially
non-gdb debuggers) that can be used by other applications. It's C++,
which you might not like, but it's better that the work is being done
somehow by someone - I'm sure it could be ported to
your-favourite-language in future if absolutely necessary.
- Getting debugging right is a big enough problem, and one that no Linux
IDE seems to have achieved yet, that I think it's a good idea to focus
on the problem in one application. The code and ideas can be used
elsewhere later.
