There is general confusion as to which part of the traceback is truncated. If I have main() -> f() -> g() -> error(), and the limit is 2, does it print main() -> f(), or does it print g() -> error()? (I'm not even sure which would be more useful.)

FWIW the reason I suggested printing "many" is a worry that somehow a bug could cause counting the length of the list to take forever (e.g. if it ends in a cycle). It would seem more robust to limit the count.
