Thanks for posting this; it's nice.

What I'd like is for the "Create" button on the PreDebugWindow to do 
what the menu choice does.

Would you like to make that work? Of course, the problem is that you'd 
have to make a deferred action of some sort that would have to wait 
till the full debugger was built...

This doesn't work in MVC.

And I got a walkback in implement:inClass: with the comma operator 
between the ' anObject' string and index. This fixes that particular 

implement: aSelector inClass: aClass

	| aStream |
	aStream := String new writeStream.
	aSelector isUnary ifTrue:
		[aStream nextPutAll: aSelector].
	aSelector isInfix ifTrue:
		[aStream nextPutAll: aSelector, ' anObject'].
	aSelector isKeyword ifTrue:
		[aSelector keywords doWithIndex:
			[:each :index |
				aStream nextPutAll: each; nextPutAll:  ' anObject'; nextPutAll: 
index asString; nextPut: $ ]].
	aStream cr; cr; tab; nextPutAll: 'self shouldBeImplemented'.
	aClass compile: aStream contents.
	self selectedContext restartWith: (aClass lookupSelector: aSelector).
	self resetContext: self selectedContext.
	self contextStackIndex: 1 oldContextWas: nil
