[IronPython] Exceptions from the console in a background thread...

I'd like to file a low priority bug...under the "wouldn't it be nice
if..." category.


When you have an exception occur while using the console, it produces a
very nice output (a stack trace including only Python code).


However, if you run this in a background thread you get a monstrosity of
a stack trace including C# code with no Python code.  It would be very
nice if this printed a nice python stack trace since the error which is
returned in a thread is not useful in the slightest.  Here's a quick


>>> def Test():

...     asdf


>>> Test()  # useful stack trace

>>> import thread

>>> thread.start_new_thread(Test, tuple())  # not useful at all
