I'm glad to see something like this coming along, but see below.

So the same command line driven, hard to use interface that
Linux kernel debuggers and gdb use, with hardly ever all
needed information visible at once on the screen because of
things scrolling away too fast. Unfortunately it's quite
unlikely that I'll ever find time to try to port the debugger
I had ported to Linux a few years back (called nlkd at that
time) over to Xen, which - with its Borland Turbo Debugger
derived UI - makes all of the most important state information
available at once.
