Well, actually very soon 1.19 will be hitting the streets. The changes
are noted in the bashdb-pydb mailing list. An archive of the relevant
mail is here:

So what's the problem then with using run? The rational for the names
of the commands is here:

Since you use emacs, you might look at the demo at

If you are having this confusion over how to change a program and keep
settings, watch that demo. You'll see I cover exactly that
scenario. ;-)

My point is the information is in fact out there. If it's not in the
most usable form and you can think of a better way to present the
information by all means make a suggestion or better just provide
patches to the documentation, web-pages, etc.
