If you mean:

1. n <- next step over everything (including grep/map/sort).

2. s <- step into everything (including grep/map/sort).

3. forget nn and N.

Then I would think this would be (mostly very) intuitive change, and the 
behaviour (most) people would expect from the debugger, most of the time.  
You'd have to check for unwarranted side effects of course, such that blocks 
other than single-line grep, map and sort, remain unaffected, but otherwise 
it seems to me to be a good idea.
