    When you step through a function, you can either step into or step
    across function calls.  By analogy, when you are stepping through an
    advised function, it should be technically possible to step across any
    advice code or infrastructure to the point of the (ad-do-it) call.

To pretend that the advice is not there is counterproductive.
That would only exacerbate the problem caused by advice -- which is
that it runs and you don't notice.

When you do know about the advice, you might sometimes want to run
across it in the debugger without stopping.  A command to do that
could be useful on those special occasions, so I would be happy to
have it installed for that purpose.
