I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "looks like code which was moved".
It does replace the functionality of debugger-make-xrefs.  But
`ert--make-xrefs-region' is still using `debugger-make-xrefs', and I
don't quite see how to remove that usage.

I thought moving those inside might needlessly make the function less
flexible, though nobody is currently making use of the flexibility so
maybe it's not worth it...

backtrace--print-frame I guess?  I haven't changed the printing for
`backtrace', perhaps I should...

Sure.

Yeah, I just followed the others, I'll remove it.

Oh, I think that's leftover from avoiding Bug#27117.

Oops!
