As several folks have said, print is a statement, and Python doesn't
really let you add statements to the language.

You said you wanted to build a simple debugging function, so maybe
this doesn't fit the bill, but for bigger pieces of code Python has a
nice logging library. It's something like log4j or java.util.logging.
