It would be wonderful if there was a configurable mem location (or series of
locations) you could strobe that would start/stop the trace in Z26.  I had a
small part of a single frame to debug and had to wade through 6MB of trace
data to find it.  Now, I'm not complaining, just suggesting. :)  I was very
thankful that it had the trace feature... once I found the right location,
debugging was a snap! ... and honestly, it wasn't all that hard to find the
location with a hex address search.
