Lets be absolutely clear about this: I've never claimed that
tools can't help. In this thread I've been using the term
debugger in the narrow sense implied by the OP's question --
something that steps through the execution of the code. Such
a debugger is inappropriate for Haskell programmers, and
doubly so for beginners.
