Good idea.

Without modifying the source code you could try setting a breakpoint on a 

        b foo::mysubname

You could also use a watch variable, if you have a suitable variable available 
in the file you wish to debug, something like this perhaps:

        w $foo::myvarname

Before you try rewriting the debugger from scratch, you might like to look at 
the output of the help for breakpoints, which you can access from within the 
debugger like this: 

        h b

As you might expect, TMTOWTDI.
