I have a suggestion that would make supporting yast way easier:

Yast D E B U G G E R!!!!!

Most successful computer languages have debuggers. Why doesn't Yast
have one?

Because it's not a successful language, SCNR.

YaST developers are real hackers, doing debug prints only.


Actually, there never was a strong need for a debugger. It was
discussed a few times, but never got sufficient traction/priority
to get implemented.

Actually, there *was* a debugger, but with the great interpreter
rewrite for SLES9, it got neglected and dropped.

Anyway, YCP is still going to be around for some time, and adding
some debugging facilities may be worth the effort. Roberto, what
would you find useful? Please keep in mind that our focus will be
elsewhere, so distill what is most important.
