Is that possible?  I once spent hours studying pdb docs and found no way
to set a breakpoint in advance, without modifying the source file in
question, and without having the user to do manual interaction at the

The closest that I can come is

    import pdb
    dbg = pdb.Pdb()
    dbg.set_break(filename, lineno)

but this breaks into the pdb prompt at once, without waiting for the
breakpoint to get triggered, and I have to manually 'c' to get unstuck.

What am I missing?
