Good! I'd love to see it in the next release!

I guess the message got lost, I can't remember I saw it.

I don't know what it should do but as I believe that your signal
interface will become a permanent part of Python I don't see a problem
with putting it in __builtin__.

The frame object sounds like the proper thing to do here. Traceback
objects are only used to keep past frames alive -- when a signal
handler is called the current frame is still alive so there is no need
for a traceback yet.
