The primary reason I still use print statements (essentially) rather
than the debugger is that I can't find a good way to get the debugger
to interact with a script running in a CGI session. Since a lot of what
I have to work with is so state-dependent (using cookies, etc.), it's
difficult to just run the script on the command-line.

I'd been messing around for a bit with an attempt to get the CGI script
to open an xterm on my box (over ssh) with a perl debugger session
connected to the script, but never quite got it working.
