I don't know how you could do it without walking the frame stack.
Granted, you don't need all the information that the stack holds
(you don't need to know about line numbers, instruction numbers
and local variables, for instance :-)), but you still have to walk
*some* kind of dynamically-created stack. This isn't something
that is solvable statically (as opposed to e.g. a class's __qualname__,
which is computed at compile-time).
