What I miss, coming from Python, is the Python debugger's post-mortem 
inspection feature. When a program crashes, I can inspect the complete 
program state at that point. That has taken care of 90% of my debugging 
needs in Python.

My impression is that even DrRacket doesn't have something like that, 
although I may have easily missed some DrRacket feature.
