automatically transform module docstrings, moving legal stuff to comments a script was used to extract all copyright and license strings from the docstring and put them into comment lines above the docstring. this was done to not have the legal stuff in autogenerated docs repeated over and over again.

    Thread monitor - Check the state of all threads.

    Just call activate_hook() as early as possible in program execution.
    Then you can trigger the output of tracebacks of all threads
    by calling trigger_dump().
