Thank you for not then saying it's a requirement!

When I use Django and something crashes in development mode, the views
return a stack trace. When you click on a line in the trace, it
expands into a quickwatch of all the variable names and values in one
stack frame.

Where is Python getting that from, and can't you use it?

(All of these topics go under the category "test-driven development
must be _more_ powerful than debugging, at all times, and in all
layers & situations. Anything debugging can do, TDD can do better!")
