Debug output is limited to 200 characters per `#debug` directive; if
that limit is exceeded, the message is truncated to 156 characters and
"..." appended to indicate the deed.

Note that you can construct longer debug output lines by chaining
`#debug` directives rather than using `concat`.

(Don't ask me about the rationale; I'm just a messenger of
implementation facts here.)
