+From the spec:
+"The break instruction is for debugging support. It signals the CLI to
+inform the debugger that a break point has been tripped. It has no
+other effect on the interpreter state.
+The break instruction has the smallest possible instruction size so
+that code can be patched with a breakpoint with minimal disturbance to
+the surrounding code.
+The break instruction might trap to a debugger, do nothing, or raise a
+security exception: the exact behavior is implementation-defined."
