This is not possible with the ODB tracer API since that would be very
heavy-weight both in terms of the implementation and runtime overhead.

However, SQLite provides its own tracing support with the sqlite_trace()
API. And I believe in recent versions of SQLite this will include actual
values (what it will print if you persist, say, a 1Mb BLOB I don't know).

The following earlier post explains how you can enable SQLite-level
tracing with ODB:
