New submission from Eric Snow <ericsnowcurrently at gmail.com>:
In Programs/_test_embed.c the "list_frozen" command prints out the name of each frozen module (defined in Python/frozen.c). The only place this is used is in Tools/scripts/generate_stdlib_module_names.py (in list_frozen()). That script can be updated to call imp._get_frozen_module_names(), which was added in PR GH-28319 for bpo-45019. Then _test_embed can go back to being used strictly for tests.
(FWIW, the script could also read from Python/frozen_modules/MANIFEST after running "make regen-frozen". That file was added in GH-27980).
