Which is why you should write correct code that does not need debugging.

The use of higher order functions that generate the code will make this
a lot easier.

The next stop is to generate the JS with HOFs and make sure the generators
are correct.

You don't want to write JS by hand - that's work - let a program do it for
you :-)
