A few of us here at Agere Systems (which used to be part of Bell Labs
which used to exist) who design & build embedded processing software
tools (especially debuggers & profilers) have started prototyping a
XML carrier for debug information that traditionally comes to a
debugger via DWARF (or similar). We get the target process state
information (which changes frqeuently) via a RPC mechanism against an
API (that could be standardized), we (are starting to) get debugging
symbolic info (which changes infrequently) via XML.

It seems to make sense, not only for portability among compilers, but
also for distributed debugging, cross debugging, etc., where the
debugger machine is different from the target.

Don't have any results yet. Would be interested in hearing similar
tales, pitfalls, etc.
