[core libraries] Re: Add taggedTrace to Debug.Trace

Almost any formatting will do. At least I never care.
I assume those APIs would be used for very ad-hoc use (like the other APIs
in Debug.Trace).
And debug codes put by such cases are deleted or disabled by NoTrace
<https://hackage.haskell.org/package/NoTrace> package in production.
I want handy default functions available without batteries.
Detailed formatting for debug messages should be configured by
third-parties' logging libraries.
