I think the part you're objecting to is a possibly misguided attempt  
to prevent the UI thrashing that occurs, generally, when you open a  
debugger window from some process other than the UI process.  I say  
misguided because although I've tried many solutions to this problem,  
I've never been able to convince myself that any of them actually do  
anything.  At any rate, it should definitely be moved to  
SeasidePlatformSupport (if not removed entirely).

Sorry for leaving it in there; suffice it to say that said thrashing  
can be extremely frustrating, and not leave me in the right state of  
mind to produce elegant solutions.

As Lukas indicated, I don't think you should try to duplicate it for  
VW; just open a debugger in the normal way.
