Maybe you can, and maybe not.  Those fire at "unsafe" times and are 
limited in what you can do from them.  Arbitrary debugging doesn't fit

But yes, in general debuggers can use internal APIs with higher trust in 
the callee as needed.  The question is whether they can work within the 
resulting constraints.....
