It looks like you can import wingdbstub within CherryPy response 
functions like you can do with cgi scripts.  I just tried this with the 
simple helloworld script from their tutorial, adding the import 
wingdbstub as the first line in the index() method.

When the server.threadPool setting is 0 (the default), all requests are 
apparently run on a single thread.  This works around Wing's inability 
to debug multiple threads.

Let us know if you run into any problems,
