A dialog box will be popped up if the user is on the system, but when remotely connected we would need to detect this and return a correct error. This is a little harder as well because "debugserver", our GDB remote protocol debug stub, is what is requesting the debugging privelege. This is a program that is spawned by LLDB as a child process. But is should be able to be done somehow.

I have a low priority Todo to implement this - when I looked into it, it was just a few CF calls and I could retrieve whether developer mode was enabled in debugserver and report that to the user.
