Trace with parameter names

Our MBS Trace function will get an upgrade for the version 12.1 of MBS FileMaker Plugin: Since we now sync parameter names as metadata into our C code, we can show it in the user interface on macOS, currently planned with a tooltip on function names:



We add Plugin.GetFunctionParameters function to query it programmatically and we use it to annotate our trace logs:
