/window new hide
/exec -interactive perl -d -e 0
But that doesn't echo your own commands into the window, so maybe something
like /exec -interactive tee /dev/stderr | perl -d -e 0, but that doesn't seem
to want to quit here without a kill.
Anyways, being able to actually debug irssi scripts would be nice...
Is this an irssi-specific problem? Is debugging Perl embedded into another
program in a way similar as in irssi rather unexplored territory, or is it
really supposed to work?
Perhaps it's because irssi (glib) controls the main loop and not Perl?
