I would chime in with my voice to request trapping access to a particular
range of addresses as being a *major* improvement.  I'm trying to port
a program to the PET from the C-64 and I think the print routines in the
ROMs are stepping on a zero page variable.  

What would be the best way to phrase the traps for me would be that if a
memory location is between $X and $Y and the program counter is between $X1
and $Y1, then trap.  That way, it would be possible to trap certain
routines as the access certain locations.  I could get Zork I working on
the PET in no time.  I've already got it working on the VIC-20.
