$ python3.4 -m trace -l 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.4/", line 170, in _run_module_as_main
    "__main__", mod_spec)

  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.4/", line 787, in main
    progname = prog_argv[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

I would expect something more clear to be printed, like the program usage helper you get in this case:

$ python3.4 -m trace 
/usr/local/lib/python3.4/ must specify one of --trace, --count, --report, --listfuncs, or --trackcalls
