A simple chronological output might be enough for many cases.  Showing 
stack context might help.  Filtering will probably provide for most 
other needs.  Users will normally use this with some question in mind, 
like "what browser views is this page using?"  To answer that question, 
the user will probably filter the report to show only adaptation from 
(any_object, IBrowserRequest).  We'll need experience with the tool to 
find out what filters are most useful.  Then we'll provide a menu of 
predefined filters.
