Very nice, Rene, thanks for pushing forward on this.

I would add that another priority for the tracer code should be the ability
to hook into the other plugins as necessary (especially the material
models).  I'd be happy to help you work on this, though I suppose I also
have something approximating a thesis to be working on...
