Trev has this functionality, but it is currently disabled because there are
bugs when editing the trace in complemented mode. However if you do not wish
to edit then just reenable it. To do this create yourself a $HOME/.trevrc and
add the line:

add_command    {Edit.Complement}                2 18 {.trev.trace.t complement}

(Or alternatively remove the comment in $STADTABL/trevrc)
