Description Andrew Cagney 2005-12-13 18:18:28 UTC
vte is capable of starting a sub-process running, say, bash.  What's instead
needed is for vte to request that frysk's core start a sub-process - such a
process will have tracing enabled so will be debuggable from the word go.

Note that the existing create-child code in frysk's core already takes
stdin/stdout/stderr String parameters (presumably here they would be supplied
with the path to the vte's pty's tty) and wires up the new process to them when
they are supplied; of course this may not be sufficient.
