FWIW, I chose this different solution for my init file: when I hit a
certain key at any line in the debugger buffer, I get a popup window
that shows the according (clicked) frame as pretty printed lisp
expression in emacs-lisp-mode.  Having a separate buffer has its
advantages, since this expression can be really huge.  The tricky part
is to get the correct frame number to pass to `backtrace-frame'.

Another command pops up a buffer containing the whole backtrace as a
list of lisp expressions.  I chose to bind print-circle -> t for this,
because the frames can share large structures.  With print-circle ->
nil, the individual frame are better readable, but the whole thing gets
even huger.
