I was volunteering in case you were willing to let us incorporate any
fixes and improvements you made to your separate mode into the trunk but
couldnt or didnt want to do it yourself. The commentary of your file
says that certain bugs have been fixed, iirc.

That's what I am currently working on cleaning up. This is mainly to
provide a cleaner base for the integration of functionality from
Fabian's new mode.

I am unclear as to how gud-minor-mode would be better, since I am not
familiar with that mode at all. However, I remember reading in some old
thread where somebody made the point that Python's way of debugging
doesn't lend itself well to using a gud-minor-mode. I might have to go
back and reread that thread again.
