I think we have too many top-level collections and making a new one,
especially with "future-" in the name seems like a step in the wrong

("visualizer" is a better word than "debugger" or "tracker" for what
it does, IMO, altho it has elements of those. But if you read the docs
in the Guide about it, you should get some idea what it does.)
