Actually, many Prolog systems contain a decompiler for accessing the internal
clause database. Decompiling is not too hard in the standard execution model
for Prolog (Warren Abstract Machine), but is a PITA as soon as optimizations
must be considered.

As recently mentioned on comp.lang.prolog, SWI-Prolog contains a decompiler.
