I'm not sure reusing DDB is by definition the best idea, my idea was
more to have a simple EVENTHANDLER and let all sorts of subsystems
hook their own private function into that.

With DDB there is a focus on fitting things on screens etc, with a
"summary dump" this is less the case and more fields could be dumped
from data structures etc.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
