Yes, though...

It seems funny that we'd iterate through the list checking over and over
whether tracing is enabled.

Should this do:

  if (!trace_want(&trace_default_key))
	return;

at the top? (Or possibly even take a trace key from the caller, so that
it can use whatever context makes sense for this particular list?)
