// Live Edit feature implementation.
// User should be able to change script on already running VM. This feature
// matches hot swap features in other frameworks.
// The basic use-case is when user spots some mistake in function body
// from debugger and wishes to change the algorithm without restart.
// A single change always has a form of a simple replacement (in pseudo-code):
// script.source[positions, positions+length] = new_string;
// Implementation first determines, which function's body includes this
// change area. Then both old and new versions of script are fully compiled
// in order to analyze, whether the function changed its outer scope
// expectations (or number of parameters). If it didn't, function's code is
// patched with a newly compiled code. If it did change, enclosing function
// gets patched. All inner functions are left untouched, whatever happened
// to them in a new script version. However, new version of code will
// instantiate newly compiled functions.

// The primary interest of the Tracker is to record function scope structures
// in order to analyze whether function code maybe safely patched (with new
// code successfully reading existing data from function scopes). The Tracker
// also collects compiled function codes.
