No. :-)

ICorDebug is a COM interface.  To use it remotely, you need DCOM
support.  DCOM will require either pulling in the DCE RPC libraries or
Wine, which would probably double the size of Mono instantly.

Plus, there are already Linux debuggers which can debug remotely (I
believe gdb has this functionality).  It would be much easier creating
nice gdb support for Mono than it would be to implement ICorDebug...
