When we first discussed non-stop debugging, I also thought that once
it was available, there would be no reason for all-stop.
However, after talking to different people, it seems that it can
come down to a matter of taste and that some users prefer all-stop.
Also, from what I understand, non-stop was a necessary step to get
to multi-process. Some of the users I've spoken to didn't actually mind
all-stop within a single process (for threads), as long as multi-process
All this to say that it does seem that all-stop may still be chosen by some.
