@defvar debugger-stack-frame-as-list
If this variable is non-@code{nil}, every stack frame of the backtrace
is displayed as a list. This aims at improving the backtrace
readability at the cost of special forms no longer being visually
different from regular function calls.
With @code{debugger-stack-frame-as-list} non-@code{nil}, the above
example would look as follows:
----------- Buffer: backtrace-output ------------
(list ...computing arguments...)
@end group
(progn ...)
(eval (progn (1+ var) (list (quote testing) (backtrace))))
(setq ...)
(save-excursion ...)

** 'switch-to-buffer-preserve-window-point' now defaults to t.
** The new variable 'debugger-stack-frame-as-list' allows displaying
all call stack frames in a Lisp backtrace buffer as lists. Both
debug.el and edebug.el have been updated to heed to this variable.
