Hi Michael,

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.

Your case is surely valid, but sounds a bit niche to me. It shouldn't be too hard to evaluate this, though:

(with-eval-after-load 'tramp
  (trace-package "tramp-"))

And the current patch makes it easier.

Perhaps you're actually be suggesting some kind of `eval-after-load'
tracing behaviour, though?

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.

Considering elp-instrument-package does not do that, I think we should limit the scope of the currently discussed patch, and trace only already loaded functions.

If we do what you suggest, it should be a new discussion, and it should improve elp-instrument-package as well.
