Debug helper for erl

Greetings,

A while back I wrote up a trick that I've found useful when debugging
port drivers:

Basically, the idea is to tweak the erl script so that if an
environment variable (USE_GDB) is set, gdb is invoked with the
appropriate parameters for a debugging session.

Is there any interest on the part of the OTP team for incorporating
this into the mainline?

Thanks,

D.
