I used to use XEmacs much like John describes, although I did use the 
debugging mode in XEmacs.  That was long enough ago that lldb wasn't 
around, at least not for what I was working on.  Now I use XCode for 
debugging and BBEdit for editing.  They work together pretty well and 
XCode's debugging GUI is quite nice.  I remember debugging using address 
stops and console switches, so this is a big step up.
