Traceback printout on fatal exceptions would be nice
Using art services that throw fatal cet::exceptions can create some difficult-to-debug situations in which we know what crashed, but we do not know what called it (without starting a debugger). When a fatal exception is thrown, but before the stack is unwound, it would be nice to print out a backtrace, however ugly. Extra credit for being able to turn this feature on and off.

We will propose a solution at the next stakeholder meeting. Capturing the call-stack information can be expensive at run-time, and if we are going to do this, we need to have agreement from the stakeholders that the cost is worth it. We will also discuss mechanisms for run-time control of the facility.
