You could probably have your script look at the name of it's parent process.

I suspect this is about as portable as it is fun, which is to say not very.

Maybe Wing could set an envvar in the child?  Like WING_DEBUGGING=1 or 

This would also be helpful for debugging webservers, many of which provide 
browser-friendly formatting for unhandled exceptions; this needs to be off 
when using the debugger, but is generally handy otherwise.
