New submission from Mario Corchero <mariocj89 at gmail.com>:

Add an option to trace to be able to do `python3 -m trace -t --module my.module.name` to be able to trace a runnable module the same way we can do with scripts.

As we want trace to not include the lines in runpy I am going to with the approach of pdb (issue32206) over the one on profiler(issue32512). As Nick raised before this hits a private API in runpy but it is within the stdlib. Alternatives are welcomed as well! :)

Additionally, '-m' is already in use, I have added --module.
