  I suggest reading the manual on Allegro CL's TRACE top-level command.  as
  far as I understand your question, it does what you want, and much more.

  debugging by inserting code is generally considered to be very intrusive
  to the code in question, and even more unlikely to produce efficient
  bug-hunting.  consider ADVICE, TRACE, STEP, etc, instead.  debugging in
  Common Lisp and C are as different as the languages are.
