This is true.  But usually these are things that you don't *want* to
be easy, like shooting yourself in the kidney. (But these features are
often described in ways that make them sound great, like "flexible
usage of bullet-placement tools".)  Inserting arbitrary print
statements into the middle of some code is difficult for a reason.
