and debugging becomes a nightmare (hello gdb people!)

(gdb) call debug_tree (*expr_p)
 <integer_cst 0x7ffff695d7c0 type <integer_type 0x7ffff67fa5e8 int> 
constant 9>
(gdb) call debug_tree (0x7ffff67fa5e8)
Cannot resolve function debug_tree to any overloaded instance

filing bugs does not help (as usual).

It's a year old, to prep for this change.  Now we're here.  Debugging
