I think David Abrahams should be the one to get the credit: it was his idea 
to use the tracing machinery, while I just implemented a rough 
proof-of-concept.  I could have implemented it a year ago, had I thought of 
it before now.  So, that makes it *his* solution as far as I'm concerned, 
and thus you can blame him for any resulting consequences.  <wink>

(Similarly, the concept of using _getframe() magic and __metaclass__ 
munging to implement class decorators was originally proposed by Jim Fulton 
and Steve Alexander; I just developed a robust, co-operative, and 
general-purpose implementation of the concept for Zope and PyProtocols.)
