[Python-Dev] Proposal: thread.get_dict

We often want to associate data with threads.  Python
manages a dictionary per-tread for this purpose, but there's
currently no way to get to this dictionary from Python.

I propose, for 2.4, to add a get_dict method to the thread
module that will return this dictionary.  This will be
implemented via a call to PyThreadState_GetDict.

Any objections?
