Thanks for sharing this hack just in time for me to make use of it as
well.  It seems to work as long as the module name is a simple
identifier (such as "to" or "mzscheme"), but if I replace the module
name with (lib "frtime.ss" "frtime") then I get this error:

errortrace: unrecognized expression form at top-level: (require
(all-except (lib "frtime.ss" "frtime") #%module-begin))

Any clue what this means?  It seems to be coming from make-annotate in
errortrace/stacktrace.ss, even though make-annotate does have a case
for forms beginning with "require", which looks like it should match.
