Mostly. You'd still need to include the app that is capable of receiving the seq_trace messages and formatting spans to be reported from them, but you'd be able to trace any message path without code modifications.

But yea, I don't know either if it is as simple as letting it use bigints, or what the consequences of doing so would be.

Hopefully someone on the OTP team sees this and can answer :)
