Righ that's much proper.

BTW: I see that tracing_reset is called even on start and reset
callback by the tracers. Wouldn't it better to do it
only on reset? Perhaps it can even be done automatically by the
tracing Api itself when reset is called on
every tracers. Or perhaps there could be special cases I don't see
where one tracer wouldn't wish to erase is entries
on reset?
