/// Helper class used to construct source-level debugging information.
///
/// The helper contains a notion of "current context", which is a
/// DWARF descriptor object representing the scope (module, class,
/// function, etc.) that currently encloses the definitions being
/// emitted.
///
/// Initially, you should call setModule() to specify the target
/// module. Descriptors which are generated will be inserted into
/// this module. This also generates the initial set of anchor
/// descriptors, if they have not already been created for the module.
///
/// Next, you should call createCompileUnitDescriptor() to create
/// the descriptor for the current compilation unit. This method
/// sets the current context to the newly created descriptor.
///
/// Once that has been done, you can then create descriptors for
/// global definitions (functions, variables, etc.). You can use
/// setContext() to modify the current context. setContext() returns
/// a reference to the previous context, allowing easy restoration
/// of the previous context.
