I like this idea a lot.  With the extended trace command, it is not
convenient to trace all methods of a generic function if I do not have
a (DEFGENERIC ...) defined.  To do that, I have to either type 
(TRACE ...) into a REPL or do C-c C-t on all (defmethod ...).   Or maybe
I'm missing something?

Please make the new extended trace command coexist with the original one.

Thanks a lot.
