Thanks for bringing this point up. I was thinking the process a little bit different. :(

I think you need to come up with a less general concept than "for undefined reasons", which is what I meant when I said "you need to be clearer". If there are particular things you want to control, that may be possible, depending on what they are.

Ok. What I want to control at this point are variable assignments (global and local) and function calls. With function calls I mean function's parameters and return values. So I want to have control over parameters before function is called and return values before they are returned.

Speed is not important. I'll think about your idea.
