Yes, with an add-on script for Wing. See the script set_breaks_from_markers
in scripts/debugger-extensions.py in your Wing installation. You'll want
to copy/rename that and replace its scan for markers w/ scan for the types
of code you want to set breakpoints on.
Extending Wing with scripts is documented here:
