debugging web services

Has anybody noticed that you can seamlessly debug locally hosted web services? This is really handy IMO, does Microsoft promote this feature? You can be debugging a winforms app with a web service call, and step right into the web service, even accidentally - as was the case with me. At first I didn't even realize where I was, but then I saw some ADO.NET code and said to myself "hmm.. doesn't this happen on the web service side?" and after a bit of investigation, I found it was actually just as easy as wandering into a gold mine.
