“This behavior” consists of two changes to the current state (which
allows editing while debugging):
* binding additional keys, and
* locking source files to be read-only,
and these changes need to be done simultaneously.
This may be achieved several ways, one of them being a minor mode,
which I am suggesting here.
Other ways include:
* Binding keys directly in the gud-minor-mode-map, along with fringe
clicks. This way, each such binding will have to check for a flag
(which may or may not be the read-only flag), and invoke either the
appropriate debugger command or self-insert-command.
* Binding keys globally, then checking if the debugger is active, in
addition to the above.
In my opinion, a separate minor mode is much cleaner than any of the
