There are few possible solutions and I have not really looked at any of 
them. I see the user interface as part 4 of the trace/capture picture 
where part 1 is the trace linker, 2 is the target capture code, 3 is the 
target to host transfer and any post processing and 4 is the user 
interface. There is no implied order on implementing the parts and 
anyone can become involved and help.

The possible options are:

   1. Babletrace and the CTF (http://www.efficios.com/babeltrace)
   2. gdb record replay
   3. dtrace
   4. .... any other suggestions ???

The idea of supporting CTF is attractive and I have met Christian from 
EfficiOS and discussed using this tool with RTEMS and he liked the idea.

There is also the task of adding more signature definitions, for example 
POSIX, RTEMS API and libc so there is plenty to do and ways for people 
to help. Documentation would be a be a huge help to me.

If you are lurking on the list and would like to help you can contact me
