I've only just tried PDBDebugMode, very handy since you don't have
to put set_trace() in your code (and remember to remove it).

I have also sometimes used Chris Withers' "zdb" product, 
which has some overlap in that it allows you to do this in restricted
code, e.g. cmf scripts:

from Products.zdb import set_trace

... and, very usefully, once in the debugger you can use the "l" command
to see the script source and it gets line numbers right.  So Ross, maybe
you can borrow some of Chris' code :-)

Unfortunately zdb doesn't appear to work with zope 2.9 / python 2.4.
I'll file a bug report with Chris.
It works great with zope 2.8 / python 2.3.
