Tim Peters' current-frames branch

Tim posted a message to python-dev today asking if he could get some changes into the threading code of Python, namely, exposing a mechanism for mapping thread names to thread frame objects in a dict. This is the original conversation back in March 2005,

Since the Python trunk is in "feature-freeze" and Tim's patches can't be incorporated, it looks as though he's made his own branch for these features, tim-current_frames. The actual code is going to be used to get the functionality of a module called 'threadframe' into the Python core. This could really be useful to my SoC project for using these features to help debug threaded applications :-) Who knows, if I can think of some useful things to add, maybe Tim will accept them?

I'll keep y'all posted.

Well, it's been checked into trunk :D thanks to positive feedback to Tim's post on python-dev.
