Subject: Confusing appearance of TRACE''s value-return line

Lisp Version: 25-Apr-84 20':38':55

Description: The TRACE printout upon entry to a function prints the name of the function; and for each argument, it prints "<argname> = ...".  The printout upon exit also prints  "<fnname> = ...",  which is frequently hard to distinguish from the lines printed for each argument value.  Suggest a fontshift on the exit-line function name (for WBREAK -- not concerned about Teletype-level breaking), or some other symbol to distinguish the value-return line.
