It does not seem clear or realistic that the typical ISIS user
will be exhaustively informed about the various ways in which
S-Lang scripts might be debugged.  I suspect typical users would
be much more inclined to type something like

	isis>  help debug

than to know that 

	isis>  help _traceback

is even possible, but right now the former returns only

	No help on 'debug' is available
	Found 1 matches in namespace Global:
	_set_debug_hook

So, perhaps it would be helpful if

   isis>   help debug

were created?  To return something like

   debug

   SYNOPSIS
	A summary of debugging techniques that may be used in ISIS.

   ...

that would group together debugging-related functionality like

	_traceback
	isis -g
	isis -v option
	interactive debugger
	_debug_info

and so forth.

A search of the manual shows that only _debug_info is explicitly
mentioned in the ISIS 1.5 manual.pdf -- nothing about --g, or
_traceback, etc.

Just A Thought,
