Also, if I didn't make it clear: *anybody* who wants to correct the 
comments about *anything* is welcome to do so. I don't own the debugger 
comments. I just want them to be as right as possible. Based on what I 
could figure out from reading the code, they were the best job I could 
do. Obviously, the original authors' corrections would be most welcome 
-- and the more of them the better.
Even if the new comments completely replaced everything I did, that 
would be fine. It's getting the ball rolling that counts.

The better we understand the debugger now, the easier it will be when 
it's rewritten. And it will get rewritten.
