Indeed, I saw you plug-in and since it worked so well I wanted to make a native 
version of this plug-in to avoid taking over the python interpreter and get 
native performance. Very nice work on that plug-in as it inspired this one! I 
adopted many similar settings that you allow in the launch.json file and added 
some new ones.

That is what I was planning to do. Might be nice to work together on this and 
get the testing working as it could test both of our plug-ins. Would be great 
to have a debug session with a simple program that sets a breakpoint by name, 
by file and line and exception and run, hit the breakpoints, view variables,
