It would be nice if the scripts to build and push code off to the
emulator and such were written as scripts or small utility programs
rather than being part of a Java IDE. Then different interfaces could
all use the convenience scripts (e.g. your netbeans IDE, Emacs, folks
manually pushing things the hard way).

Getting GDB to work on the emulator and device shouldn't be too
different; see chapter 17[0][1] of the GDB manual for info on how
remote debugging works. It should just be a matter of changing the
network address to which the gdb frontend is set to connect.
