Trace calls in a module

How do you do the equivalent of include in a module? I would like to
trace all the calls in a module. There is an example for how to do this
as a mixin for a class in the pick axe, but how do I do it for a module?
Can I get access to the meta class for the module and mix it in there?

Thanks

I don’t understand this: why is tracing of method calls equivalent to
module inclusion?

I don’t have my pickaxe handy right now. What does the code do? It may
be possible to just exchange a module with the class.

Kind regards

The aren’t, just what I’m trying to do (below) requires an include,
except I want to use it in a module.
