The procedure %sc-method-env returns the environment containing
the methods of a class. By using this and advise-entry and advise-exit
different tracing macros can be written.

For example, we can write a special form trace-method-entry to trace 
the entry of method m1 of class class1.

(trace-method-entry m1 class1)


(macro trace-method-entry 
  (lambda (e)
    (let ((method (cadr e))
	  (class  (caddr e)))
         (ACCESS ,method (%sc-method-env ,class))
         (lambda (p a e)
           (writeln " The method " ',method " of class " ',class 
                    " is called with " a))))))

Similarly one can write a macro to trace exits.
