I think this is a great idea.  

Perhaps the GDB remote protocol could be used directly?


Alternatively, maybe the SWD protocol could be used, as it has good support at 
the MCUs, and then convert that to to the gdb remote protocol.

The following might be useful?


The ArduElli board, in development, is planned to be compatible with the black 
magic probe.
See https://github.com/Ell-i/ELL-i-Eagle-Boards/tree/master/Arduelli

Perhaps we should try to order one Blackmagic proble before the hackathon to be 
able to prototype with that?  I can order one.  Should we have more?
