If it is not too late, I would like to "fix" the name of two functions of the new faulthandler module before the release of Python 3.3 final. Changes:

 * dump_tracebacks_later() => dump_traceback_later()
 * cancel_dump_tracebacks_later() => cancel_dump_traceback_later()

The module has also a function dump_traceback() without S.

In an early version of the module (before it was integrated in Python 3.3), these functions only dumped the current thread. They are now dumping all threads by default, and I don't see the point of having an S anyway.

@Georg: Would you accept such change? The module is new in Python 3.3, and it is only a debug module, I don't expect anyone relying on its API right now.

@georg.brandl: You wrote the wrong issue number in the Misc/NEWS file of the 3.3 repository (5969 -> 15969).
