It would be nice to include arg info in tracebacks, something like...

> ;.demo_method()
[[~perm, "Permision denied.", 0],
 ['method, 'perms, $root, $root, 20, [$foo]],
 [~methoderr, 'demo_method, $crag, $crag, 1, []],
 [~methoderr, 'tmp_eval, $crag, $crag, 3, [$crag, $nowhere]]]
Or whatever.

In other words, add the args passed to the function as the last element of
 the frame elements of tracebacks (after line number).

I will accept this project after I have finished my others if everyone likes
 it and noone else grabs it first.
