This LGTM, just one comment for when you actually push:

> +           SYMBOL_BLV (sym)->frame_local)

Our coding conventions put the logical operators at the beginning of a
line, not at EOL.

Same here.

And here.

                     ^^^^^^^^^^^
This should follow the renaming.

(Hopefully, this will be followed by a suitable Edebug binding.)

Both, I think.

Thanks, I think this is a very important new feature.
