Once bug 740542 is landed, Debugger.prototype.addDebuggee shouldn't act as a Debugger.Object factory, as Debugger.prototype.wrap does that job better. A lot of tests use addDebuggee this way; they'll need to be changed.

FOLLOWUP BUG IS FOLLOWED UP UPON
Try: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=835ca0a926b1 Looks good.
(Apologies for an especially mind-numbing r?.)
Comment on attachment 611247 [details] [diff] [review] Make Debugger.prototype.addDebuggee return undefined; change tests to use Debugger.prototype.wrap. Clearing review flag since bug 741615 should precede this now.
With bug 741615 landed, our only general-purpose Debugger.Object factory is Debugger.Object.prototype.makeDebuggeeValue, meaning that one must have an initial Debugger.Object before one can produce others at will. It would make sense, then, if addDebuggee continued to return a Debugger.Object. We can still tighten up its semantics by restricting it to operate only on actual global objects.
Summary: [jsdbg2] Debugger.prototype.addDebuggee should not be a wrapper factory → [jsdbg2] Debugger.prototype.addDebuggee should only accept global objects
