The giri project does dynamic tracing of values stored to and loaded 
from memory.  It stores the trace of memory accesses on disk because 
they get very large very quickly.  You can either reuse the Giri code or 
modify it to suit your purposes.

Swarup, is there a place where people can download the updated Giri code 
that your Google Summer of Code student worked on?
