Debug-console when using the debugger in Jupyterlab 3.x

Dear all,
I started trying out the JupyterLab 3 debugger and like it so far.
What I miss/was not able to find, is whether there is a way to have a debug-console attached, when you step into a break-point. I usually find this helpful to test things in addition to the visual debugging.
Is this available in the current version?
Thanks and best regards,

Basic support for this was will be added in JupyterLab 3.1 - the pull request implementing evaluation of code while in debugger was merged in, see this comment for a demo:
