Ah, thanks.  Ok, this is more similar to the MessageTrace (a.k.a.
Tracing Messages Browser),  which I like much better than the
"Trailblazer" (a.k.a., OB) approach that does not succinctly render a

Even this MT one, though, is not as succinct as TMB because it
"senders" are indented below, rather than outdented above.  Not only
does this make for a dichotomous "shape" of  the message-flow, it
commingles these "meta" lines ("senders") to let you know what the
code.  Also, I could be wrong, but my guess is that hierarchy widget
does not allow multi-select "swipe" so that unrelated methods can be
quickly and easily pruned from the list, leaving the developer with
only the relevant message-flow.

IMO, no one has ever solved this problem better than the guy (not sure
who) who invented TMB back in the 90's..!
