IPython has a neat little feature where the function that enters the debugger takes an optional `header` argument.  If given, it is a string that's printed to the console just before the debugger is entered.

I kind of realized this would be nice to have in pdb, and the code is easy so here's the tracking issue.

And specifically `header` is chosen to match IPython.  Why be different?
