TITLE: output debug information easily and quickly


Short form of keyword arguments where

foo(=a, =1+bar)

Is expanded at compile time to

foo(**{'a': a, '1+bar': 1+bar})

Then we can just create a normal debug function:

def debug_print(**vars):
    for k, v in vars.items():

this is of course useful for many other things as Steven has pointed out.
