Being able to launch either gdb or a graphical debugger from
ProcessController and debug_server make both sense indeed.
But a graphical debugger is also targetting beginner developers, who
be disappointed that double-clicking on
this pretty ladybug icon (hint, icons artists!) does nothing.

I did planned initially to change this Running Teams window into a
"Select Team" window :
- by selecting one in the live-updated running teams list, as today
(and as in bdb)
- by entering/browsing an executable path and, optionally, edit its
program arguments and environment variables set
Maybe, I could find some spare the time to work on that, if you don't
mind. In theory, having a valid team id to hand a debugger controller
is all you need from such GUI component, right?
Even if I've read a bit about Dwarf, libdwarf and Haiku debugger
"kit", the *meat* is definitively out of my scope,
both skills and time one.
