It's not low priority -- we want to implement decent execute support
and have already done some work in that direction (tho there won't
be any visible improvement in the first alpha of 3.0).

However, I have to admit the motivation for that is more for integrating
build and other tools, and running code that can't be debugged, than
running the same code that could easily work in the debugger.

Which always amazes me...
