[Python-ideas] pdb.set_trace may not seem long

pdb.st = pdb.set_trace

I find myself typing this a lot:

    import pdb;pdb.set_trace()

It's the int3 of python. When I want to debug an exact point in the code I
use the above line.

I hope I don't come off as spoiled, it's just that import pdb;pdb.pm() is
so short that I can't help but wonder how better my life would be if I
could do:

    import pdb;pdb.st()

What do you guys think? I know aliasing isn't cool since TSBOAPOOOWTDI but
practicality beats purity....
