[wingide-users] Breakpoints with actions and auto-continue

the debate about the merits of logging and debuggers reminded me of  
two features I would love to see in Wing:
(a) the ability to associate Python code with a breakpoint, the code  
being executed when the breakpoint is hit;
(b) the possibility that the debugger does not stop after executing  
that code.

Combined with the available conditional breakpoints, (a) and (b) are  
equivalent to inserting in the code

if (condition):
	do something

and that is the most general logging. But instead of cluttering the  
production code with such logging code which has to be removed/ 
deactivated/you name it, it all stays at the breakpoint level and I  
find that very nice. I am using it all the time in XCode, the Apple IDE.
