generators and such. But something as critical as a debugger has always
been brushed under the carpet (low or no priority). A compiler and debugger
go hand-in-hand as part of a developer's "toolbox" - think minimum

Considering that both compilers and debuggers are considered part of the
Holy Trinity of programming (with the third being operating systems) I
personally am not surprised as writing any of those three is a hard task,
much harder than e.g. a documentation generator and we definitely don't
have the manpower for that.
