unfortunetly it's not so simple, getting the "vendors" to implement it
is hard enough (time being the scarce reource that it is), getting
users to upgrade is even more difficult. i think it's important that
this degrade gracefully on lisps where the support doesn't exist (i'll
provide such support for openmcl). if nothing else the default
implementations should trace the outer function (sans setf) as trace
currently does.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
