Mainly that you'd have build the support for this into a running server,
which seems like a bad idea to me.

You'd need some funky mechanism for switching into and out of the
tracing mode.

I think there would be a lot more data that would be useful in
a TTW interface.

You may want to trace the publishing code.

Overall, I think a simple command-line tool that creates a log would
be a lot simpler, cleaner, and more useful.
