[Openmcl-devel] CCL stepper - first steps

I have some success, even better than expected, but now I'm not sure
the approach is viable.

I tried to step through ccl::compile-named-function with my stepper.

Good news is that I was able to instrument it correctly and it was
still kind of working.

Bad news is that it was unable to step at any of logical operations -
they are inlined and produce no function calls. There were only about
16 step points in 80-line function. Maybe more useful than nothing,
but not very useful. Or course, if we are allowed to recompile we can
add fake function calls to "and" "or" to force stepper step in them.
But partial recompiling is sometimes fragile.

You can see details in the video. Stepping through
ccl::compile-named-function is from 7:22.
