Actually, traceall() can be fixed without too much difficulty.  Just adjust 
the API such that the MD function to trace a thread isn't the direct DDB 
function, but takes a pointer to the quit variable.  Then have traceall() 
pass in its quit variable and add a simple MI wrapper for the single trace 
case that passes in a local quit variable as well and move db_setup_pager() 
into that MI wrapper and out of the MD functions.
