If you are looking for something to code that does not require deep
knowledge of strace internals, there are at least two areas that come
1. Extending strace test coverage. We are just over 50% according to
https://codecov.io/github/strace/strace, practical test coverage is
probably a bit less because some code paths executed during "make check"
are not really covered by tests.
2. Extending -e trace=class syntax with new classes. strace currently
supports desc, file, ipc, memory, network, process, and signal.
Additional classes might be useful, e.g. all open-like syscalls,
all stat-like syscalls, all syscalls dealing with uid/gid, etc.

A portable strace? Have you released it as a free software?
