Follow-up Comment #2, bug #30913 (project geiser):

Hi, Tobias!

I have no experience whatsoever with GUD, and don't know offhand how
integration in Geiser could work.

Usually, debuggers take control of the interface, limiting the kind of
evaluations/actions one can perform, and this is not really the case with
Guile's debug mode: it's just a REPL.  So i was thinking more of providing
some shortcuts in the REPL for invoking ,-commands related with debugging, and
perhaps one or two in geiser-mode to set breakpoints in source files---i've
played very little with guile's debugger, but i think that's possible.

In that model, the debugging support would be part of the REPL mode and
perhaps one doesn't even need a dedicated minor mode (but it's possible to
provide one: geiser is already tracking when guile enters the debug repl).

If we can hook GUD in there somehow, and you think it can add value to this
model, i'm all for it, specially if you can help!

(BTW, if you're in the mailing list, please feel free to answer there, so that
we can continue the discussion using a better tool than this awful bug tracker
