A stepper has not yet been implemented. It requires minor tweaks both in the 
bytecodes compiler and in the interpreter. I know how to do it (basically, 
all one has to do is insert marks in the bytecodes before each form, and 
recompile forms as they are being stepped into), but I still must find out a 
correct and efficient way that does not damage the performance of ECL.

Anyway, expect it in coming weeks. In the mean time, all I can offer is a 
patch for TRACE, which solves a problem with the new bytecodes format, and 
makes UNTRACE now work.
