[Mono-devel-list] "xml-trace" option for mono

I'm thinking of adding a xml-version of the trace option to mono. The
trace output would be completely equivalent to the current trace option.
Often I find myself searching rather large traces with lots of
information I don't need.

With a xml-trace it would be possible to
- discard all unnecessary information (e.g. hex object refs/pointers) by
applying the appropriate XSLT transformation
- compare the traces of two separate runs with some sort of xmldiff
- integrate tracing output into MonoDevelop (trace window, click on a
trace item and it takes you to the source code of the method...?)

I attached a sample file showing how a ENTER-LEAVE pair might be written
in xml.

What do you think?
Ideas, considerations, feedback of any kind appreciated!
