Slight modifications to the previous proposal:

Of course, there's no need for the "step" form to be restricted to  
one expression; if it were written to take an arbitrary number of  
expressions and evaluate them in order, the "Stepper" button would be  
equivalent to wrapping a "step" around the entire Definitions pane  
and hitting "Run".

The miniature "foot" icon would be an abbreviation for the unary form  
of "step", i.e. it would apply only to the immediately-following
