[wingide-users] Thread name display

In various debug toolboxes (debug probe, stack data, call stack, etc)., a 
dropdown box is available to select the thread.  It'd be nice to be able to 
use threading.Thread.getName() if it's available, falling back to the 
existing display of low-level id.  I realize that not all threads are 
instances of that class, but it's pretty common.  IIRC, the threading module 
maintains some sort of mapping between low-level thread id & Thread instance 
(see threading.getCurrent() maybe).
