Maybe there's some obscure incantation in the B modules while mucking
about with the padlist, but I don't really do much of that. PadWalker
might also get me what I want, but I realized I would have trouble
matching the data that I fetch with the data that I have. It seemed
more trouble than it was worth. DDS is really simple internally.
Plus, why should a source filter scare you? This is only a debugging
module. It's not intended for any sort of production use so there
shouldn't be any exposure.
