debuggers" is that with Edebug the user can switch to any buffer and
move point there, as well as move the window-point of any window.  A
Lisp program that depends on the position of point or window-point
(and most of them do) could be fatally derailed if, when the user then
resumes the debugged program, point would not have been restored, or
even if a window that didn't appear on display before now does apepar,
or vice versa.

That is why I said that defining what is the behavior we want is not
