I've looked there already -- it's, umm, minimalistic at best, and
useless at worst.  Backtracing is already turned on, but I want to be
able to get to a particular stack frame and look at the local
environent.  The Debugger Options doesn't show or explain how to do
that.  Indeed, most of the debugger is undocumented.
