We can add more hooks, that's the plan in any case post-0.7.1. There's
no need to rush anything in, I imagine the time period between 0.7.1 -
0.7.2 is not going to be as long as between 0.6.15 - 0.7.0.

This is also something where you can help; look for suitable hook
candidates and submit a patch. With your debugger implementation you
could ship an ipython extension that installs the required hooks, and
then import the extension in the ipython startup config files.
