I remember now.  In Pharo's, there was no need to select "implementors" at
all, you simply keep expanding the tree of sent messages.  I don't think it
could backtrace at all, though.

It'd be less control, not more, because you can't trim individual levels
with Cmd+d.  You'll always have either all 67 #at:'s (expanded) including
the ones totally unrelated to what you want, OR none of them (collapsed).
Try out Pharo's, you'll probably hate it.  So you can't get rid of Cmd+d,
and nor would it be good to combine it with expand / collapse capability,
because those functions would be confusingly ambiguous to the goal of
tracing code.
