That's assuming that it knows its own name, and that that name hasn't
been rebound. Is there a way for a function to find its own self?
>>> def findself():
"""Find myself. Ooh look, there I am!"""
# Now I'm not sure what to do with traceback.
# traceback.tb_frame.f_code.co_name is the function name ("findself").
# Is there a way to get the function object?
I'm kinda half-way there, but I've never worked with traceback
objects. Someone will know, I'm sure!
