Are you willing to use a setter function to set the variable? If so,
it's trivial. This sort of thing is also commonly done for GUIs -- have
a variable holder and set the variable's value via a setter function.
Then you can automatically call callbacks or print the new value or
whatever you want to do.
If not, I think you are out of luck for normal execution. The debugger
might help, or perhaps deep knowledge of the internals of Python. I'm
not familiar with either.
