These are seem vm related to me too.

Hmm.  The idea of execution frames strikes me as somewhat independent of 
vm.  In practice, they are associated with exceptions and tracebacks.  If 
these were also split off from sys in another separate module, I would look 
there for the frame functions.

| sys.builtin_module_names, too.

This strikes me as a packaging issue rather than vm issue.
