In Java, you can't introspect to see the *runtime* state of an individual
object (the ephemeral values with which local variables are instantiated).
For this, we'd need a fundamentally different JVM.

Maybe this will be supplied in Pizza (which adds higher-order functions to
Java) or some other new-wave Java variant
