A few times I've wanted to attach my debugger to an existing process on the phone.  This would be really useful.

Hi Jeremy

This is actually a feature request more than a bug. We have it already in our backlog and it was discussed several times but as it requires some deep/risky changes, was not implemented yet. 

Thanks for your feedback
