Well, I don't have enough history with Emacs to go back to it after so 
many years! In the meantime, breakpoints are not working in xcode, and 
that's quite annoying. I've looked online for possible reasons for that, 
but so far no results. When it works xcode debugging is quite useful and 
easy to use, but I'm a bit stuck with this... gonna have to investigate 
some more :( .
