Bitcoin has a nag, it allows to trace transactions... well, this can be solved by using a concentrator-disperser with a secondary database.

Say A, B and C want to remove traces of their coins, they could upload funds for a central wallet, those funds moved upwards to a central "mixer" and returned at random to each of the 3. Basically what this system would be doing would be to shuffle the coins, so A collects a random amount of coins from B and the rest from C, B from C and A and C from A and B.
Obviously with such a small universe of 3 elements it would still be roughly traceable, but with a significant universe this would allow the total wipe of BTC trace. One receiving the payment from A still could trace back those coins, but as the distribution is done by a separate and opaque database whatever he get from the previous ownership of those coins means nothing for what A has been doing or not.
In the end this is a system to trade btc for... btc.

Interesting.
So they draw random amounts from a pool? Is there a thought behind A, B and C not getting their own coins back, or should that be possible too? Wouldn't you otherwise be able to guess that somone is A based on the fact that they don't have any A-coins?

Well, now that you talk about it, the random distribution can add some coins of the own to prevent exclusion tracking.
Still, as I said, in the given 3 users' example it would still be roughly possible to track back the coins, but within 100+ not any longer. As A would be getting coins from B to ZD. So A could be C, AC, DC and all other people in between of which he didn't collect coins from.
