No need for that.

I agree that it's harder to imagine what the semantics would be for Python,
but it can have a well defined meaning for other languages. For example,
the Lua debugger
I work on (using wing!) has this feature, and it's a good user experience.

Lua has the concept of a default global environment. Python does not, but
one could imagine wing creating and using a dummy module as the environment.
