Ok, that was extremely easy, I hacked it up in the train from
Neuchatel do Geneva airport. Get the attached script show.py, make it
executable and do:
$ ./show.py t.py
set([1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15])
$ ./show.py show.py
set([3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23,
24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31])
The t.py was the example I posted in my original email, so as you can
see, the line numbers are correct. The line counting algorithm is just
20 lines long and it only needs the "dis" module. I basically stripped
down the dis.disassemble() function.
Now I am going to hack this into figleaf and prepare a patch.
