    (use-modules (ice-9 debug))

    (define (foo x)
      (cons x '()))

    (trace foo)

    (trace-stack #t)

    (with-traps (lambda ()
                  (display (foo 'bob))))


To explain, tracing by default requires 2 things, both of which are
set up by the REPL but not for a script:

- traps have to be enabled; fixed above using `with-traps', but you
  could also do (trap-enable 'traps)

- the id of the stack under which the code is executed has to be
  registered with (ice-9 debug), and by default only 'repl-stack is
  registered; the `(trace-stack #t)' above makes tracing apply
  regardless of stack id.
