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

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