I've no real plans of supporting other languages with Xdebug, as it's -
as you said - quite integrated. Some of the functionality might be a bit
more abstracted for easier use by other langauges, but I've no plans to
do so. I would suggest you write your own debugger for Lua instead.

What I'm wondering about if you're planning on making a
cross-platform debugger, which is not tied into an IDE, based on Xdebug.
That would be a great thing as there are only debugger GUIs that are
tied into an IDE, and I simply like to use my own (vim :) ).

Fine, as long as you keep cc-ing the mailing list :)
