Description:


I describe a breakpoint: its state (enabled/disabled),
condition, etc.

I may be shared by multiple instances of Breakpoint,
since there may be multiple version of same method
with breakpoints on different position but representing
the same logical breakpoint (the one set by the user).

Class protocol:

o  new
return an initialized instance


Instance protocol:

accessing
o  condition

o  condition: something

o  icon
( an extension from the stx:libtool package )
do not use abbreviations like bpnt or brp or similar;
when I do not know the exact name, I tend to search for implementors/senders
of '*break*' or '*disabled*'.
I will not find anything useful and have to single step if methods are named
cryptically.

initialization
o  initialize
Invoked when a new instance is created.
usage example(s):
super initialize.   -- commented since inherited method does nothing

support
o  beInvisible

o  beTracepoint

o  disable

o  shouldBreakIn: aContext

o  shouldTraceIn: aContext

o  toggle

o  toggleTracing

testing
o  isEnabled
Bad coding here, state should be full object

o  isTracepoint

o  isVisible
Bad coding here, state should be full object
