And with Devel::Command, you can rewire the debugger to your heart's  
content by intercepting the 'b' command, using Symbol::Approx::Sub to  
figure out the place you want to breakpoint, and then pass the  
(amended) command on to the debugger, which will then Do What You Mean.

Now everybody's happy. :)
