Our current system has "programming" and debugging, i.e. you can look
at the activations on the stack and single-step a process.  However,
the UI part of this isn't there yet, and the docs haven't been updated
either.  So it will probably take a while until the next formal release.
The VM source should be part of that (assuming that Stanford's OTL
lawyers agree with our plans), but be warned that it will be without
much documentation.
