Eben might be able to give you a better and more complete answer but...
The frame is reserved for inter-activity actions (opening an activity,
switching zoom levels, clipboard) and stuff which is common to all the
activities (like the list of partecipants or the close/share activity
actions). So conceptually it would seem wrong to put develop specific
actions in it.
I'm sure you are tired to hear this but... I strongly suggest you focus
on getting the basics of the Develop activity strong and well
integrated. And later add more sofisticated features like debugging.
