Even then, the motivation is both bogus and wrong and the design goes
against basic debugger sense which ALL implementations have implemented!
I do not see the stated `technical advantage', and it seems to you like
it because it handles a SPECIFIC restart for a SPECIFIC combination of
Lisp (SBCL) and a specific application framework. which you have used.

I do not encounter those paths, and it pessimises my sldb experience.
In particular when I provide restarts, I want the user to be able to
choose 0 as the first restart.
