While indeed Black Hole doesn't 'swallow' Gambit and abstract it away
completely, it is a good module system that delivers for practical use.

Re REPL debugging, the only limit I see is that the granularity of the code
row&column numbering is decreased to the level of individual top-level
procedure only.

Accessing the variables in their renamed form is fine also, as you have the
names of all local variables from ,be all the time.
