I want to believe that is true for debugging but I'm not as sure.

I've used DDD which allows one to quickly scroll through code and set 
breakpoints with a mouse.  Furthermore, a second window is immediately 
available to display output.

I'm not sure running pdb from a shell inside of Emacs can compete with that.  
Because pdb is command line driven it seems it will be faster.

Is this something that is NOT faster inside of Emacs and actually BENEFITS from 
a mouse?


Basically Emacs should be able to display similar info which would be available 
from other environments.
Remains the question if it is implemented resp. configured accordingly.

Don't see the mouse-question at stake at all here.
It might help to have some example case, some screenshot, which info you expect 
at which point.
