Does "Debug Syntax" not work for the macro stepper? I'd call it that and 
switch it with the debugger. Then we'd have (left to right):

Check Syntax
Debug Syntax
Debug [Program]
Run [Program]
Stop [Program]

My 10th-grade English teacher wouldn't complain about a lack of 
parallelism anymore, either. :)

P.S. I can totally see this turning into a bikeshed discussion. Let's 
acquiesce to good ideas quickly.
