In my reckoning, debugging is hardly a replacement for unit tests, where
unit tests can partially substitute for debugging, so I just write unit
tests anyway.  See in for an example;
packages/stinst/parser/ was originally written just to
guarantee behavior I rely on in Presource, because rewriting is such a
useful way to write message macros.
