Does PowerShellTunnel work when debugging?

...and would it work with PowerShell_ISE.exe in v2 so I can actually step through source code executing on the tunnel host?

I created this post on the PowerShell newsgroup :
...and I only just now stumbled upon PowerShellTunnel. This is the only project that I have found that recognizes the biggest barrier that is preventing applications of all kinds from embracing and hosting PowerShell. It isn't enough that hosting the PowerShell runtime be reasonably easy. if I have to write my own integrated scripting environment from scratch (that sounds like a few man-years of work to do a great job) then the barriers are just too high. In the best case, those of us deciding to host PowerShell in our applications are all reinventing the same wheel by writing our own console user interfaces. At a minimum Microsoft should take the guts of PowerShell_ISE.exe and make it a hostable control. Or they should enable remote debugging and also document how to replace wsmprovhost.exe with ones own PowerShell host process in remoting scenarios.
I think that embedding PowerShell into applications of all kinds could happen, but not if you cannot get an ISE for cheap.
