Yes, very useful. Obviously a well written code reduces the need for a
debugger somehow, but once in a while you forget something and then it
is useful to see what the program is doing and compare it with what
you think it should be doing. I often insert debugging prints but 
sometimes it is faster to use the debugger, depends on the nature of
the problem.

Concerning the OCaml debugger, I have only used it for a few times, so
I am perhaps not the ideal judge. However, I loved the ability to go
backward. On the other hand, I would like to see some of the abilities
of the toploop integrated in it - evaluating arbitrary expressions,
like it can be done in the Python debugger, for example.
