[plt-scheme] Debugger stepping between files?

Hi Andrew,

I realize it's been a few months since you asked about it, but I've
finally gotten around to implementing multi-file debugging.  It's
available through subversion and should also be in the nightly builds
starting with the next one.

Basically, you just open all the files you want to debug, then click
the Debug button for the main one.  Each time that file "require"s one
of the other modules, you'll be prompted for whether you want to debug
it.  If you say yes, then you'll be able to set breakpoints and step
through it as well.

I'd appreciate hearing your feedback.
