Of course it does, if it you want to have any hope of instrumenting your python memory usage with detailed python runtime information.

Your statement islike saying: "A profiler has no business looking at the  thread callstack."

Note that we are not making any new requirements on python here.  Merely facilitating the process, for those implementations that _wish_ to do so (at their own risk.)

So, although you have nothing against the patch as such, you are against it on the principle that I am using it to facilitate something that you disapprove of.  I find that a quite unreasonable position.
