Pdb can't use the commands through -c or .pdbrc files

I was under the impression you could define breakpoint commands into a .pdbrc file only to discover it doesn’t work. I found the below issue through a stack overflow post (also linked below). I would like to take a crack at making this possible but given the age of the stack overflow post and lack of activity on the issue, I am unsure if it’s meant to be possible and am seeking some expertise here, so I know it’s worth my time or not.
