What would be *really* spiffy is to provide a way for
externally-triggered thread dumps. This is one of my top two Java
features . The way this works in Java is a bit awkward --
"kill -QUIT" the Java process and it writes a traceback for every
running thread to stdout -- but it works. Something similar ought to be
possible for Python, although optional (because Python apps can handle
signals themselves, unlike Java apps).
It could be as simple as this: calling
from the program enables externally-triggered thread dumps via the
 The other is compiler recognition of "@deprecated" in doc comments.
