Ahh, my error. I thought that `trace-package' takes a package name (or
symbol), and traces only all functions which have been loaded by this
package. (trace-package 'tramp) would then trace the function
`tramp-file-name-handler (defined in tramp.el) , but not the function
`tramp-sh-file-name-handler'. The latter one is defined in tramp-sh.el.

That's not what I want. Often, I hunt bugs related to the order of
autoloaded functions, and this order shall be kept also when tracing.

Yes, that's the idea. If `trace-package' uses as argument a package name
as proposed above, the instrumentation shall happen in an
`eval-after-load' form for that package.

`trace-regexp', on the other hand, shall instrument the functions in a
form added to `after-load-functions', additonally to the functions
already loaded.
