Is there a way to find the name of the method currently being executed?

This is a massive hack, and I'm not sure if it covers the corner cases, 
but oh well :),

PythonWin 2.2.1 (#34, Apr  9 2002, 19:34:33) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32.

 >>> import traceback
 >>> class a:
... 	def func1( self ):
... 		return traceback.extract_stack(limit=1)[0][2]
... 	def func2( self ):
... 		return traceback.extract_stack(limit=1)[0][2]
... 	
 >>> a().func1()
'func1'
 >>> a().func2()
'func2'
 >>>

HTH,
