Thanks Gordon.

At the risk of sounding like a lazy whiner. This would be more useful if it
could run more like profile or pdb. Having to add calls like
"r.add_object(non_GCed_object)" make it less useful.

Is there a way to capture the creation of any instance and call r.add_object
>>> import sys
>>> def p(frame, even, arg):
...     print frame, even, arg
>>> sys.settrace(p)
>>> l=[]
<frame object at 7c9410> call None
>>> d={}
<frame object at 7c9410> call None

In perfect world for lazy whiners this works,  plumbo.run("myStuff") and it
gives me a report.
