I would like to be able to reset the next line of code that will execute in the LotusScript debugger.  This could be useful when:
1)  You change a scalar value in the debugger and need to have a section of code re-execute
2)  You change data in a RDBMS and want to retrieve the updated values
3)  You change an OS environment variable and want to get the updated values
There are probably other use cases, those are just the ones I can think of since I'm wrestling with those issues right now.  :-P

You want to go back in time, don't you?

anyone who works with IDEs such as Visual Studio, or even MS Office as well as Notes will be aware of many limitations of the Notes 'IDE'

My favourite gripe is that the line of code being executed when debugging is always at the bottom of the pane, so you can't see what's coming next without scrolling!

I guess I was assuming that desinger-in-eclipse would give us a modern, world-class debugger with basic features like this....

Craig, I don't want to make any assumptions. :-) They obviously had to rip apart the IDE-ness of Eclipse to give us RCP and Expeditor, so who knows what they might decide to add back in. The more specific we can be the better. That way the expectations are clear.

In other words - give us a proper debugger?
Yes please!
