for debugging, because the two advised function doesn't do what its
source code says it does. If the programmer investigating the problem
is unaware that there is advice on the function, the experience can be
for debugging, because the advised function doesn't do what its source
code says it does. If the programmer investigating the problem is
unaware that there is advice on the function, the experience can be
very frustrating.
We hope to remove all the places in Emacs that advise primitives.

Likewise, avoid using @code{eval-after-load} (@pxref{Hooks for
Loading}) in libraries and packages. This feature is meant for
personal customizations; using it in a Lisp program is unclean because
it modifies the behavior of another Lisp file in an invisible way.
This is an obstacle for debugging, much like advising a function in
the other package.
