[New-bugs-announce] [issue41571] Allow pdb to switch to a different thread

New submission from Pablo Galindo Salgado <pablogsal at gmail.com>:

Unfortunately, the thread experience with pdb is not as good as it could be due to the lack of thread-related commands. In other debuggers like gdb, is common to be able to do some of the following operations:

* list all threads
* switch the context to a different thread.
* Stop all threads when attaching.
* Place a breakpoint in a specific thread.

I think the user experience will improve considerably if we could implement at least these features (and maybe some others that we deem useful).
