Actually, I'm hoping that we can integrate ipython, which can run on
IronPython and Jython as well as CPython (or so they claim).  It won't
be as well integrated (probably) but is another way to get this feature.

We'll look at this again when settrace is added...

We certainly should look at this and allow setting the testing Python
separately if it can be made to work.  I don't think we're depending
on anything terribly CPython-specific for this feature.
