Seems reasonable to me.  Now if we just got rid of threads all together we
wouldn't have to worry about this.  =)

<snip - a lot of stuff>
> A trace function [3] is called with three arguments: a frame, an
> event, and an event-dependent argument.  The event is one of the
> following strings: "call," "line," "return," or "exception."  The C
> API defines trace function that takes an int instead of a string to
> define the trace event.

Need "a" here?  One one grammatical mistake?!?  Wish I could pull that off
once in the summaries.  =)
