This good way already exists: TraPatch
This (mine :-) ) TSR enables you to hook into a single function instead of a
whole trap and so the length of the chain could be reduced significantly
because many programms check for different calls.
I think I could integrate it into MiNT if it is wanted...

The only problem is missing support by other TSRs (except mine) :-(
OK, there's a small problem with the distribution too, because it's avaiable
only in the MausNet (_the_ german Atari BBS network), because I still didn't
