Found the new debug compile reporting all the include read attempts has 
an issue too.

Specifically where people use that Parse_String() macro hack. It works 
by creating and including a small include file of the same name, but 
with different contents.

In trying again to debug that flaky csv read file problem from early 
2022 of jr's, I was getting thousands of debug include messages per 
frame of a long animation! So, I commented out that nice debug code I 
just added.

I'm unsure what to do for anything shipped.We'd need a custom 
configuration option or a new run time flag/option - neither of which is 

It's hard to get simple, clean, code wins. :-)
