We are planning to have a debugger in our processor. Can't promise much
about when it (the debugger) is available, but it *will* be there
(because I really I want it :)

In a couple of weeks, there will be two :) See for some great (at least I hope)

> 7. Need a WYSIWYG tool.

...did you visit the link I mentioned above? :)
