The May specification includes a trace(VALUE, STRING) function that
is at least partly intended for debugging.  The latest CVS version of
Qexo include the trace functions.

The second half of the following (draft) article includes some notes
on debugging Qexo.  It is written in the context of web applications
(using servlets), but the debugging notes are generally applicable.
