Actually, I just closed the Stella debugger and opened PCAE - I don't know if it is just familiarity, but having everything onscreen at once (RAM, registers, ROM, flags, TIA) plus tracking what scanline I'm on, and how many cycles into it I am, just seems a better interface to me.  Even though PCAE doesn't emulate 100% accurately.

So there ya go.  I *am* looking forward to a completed Stella debugger; as it is now PCAE works better for me.
