When looking at the pydebug.h header file, I see that some symbols are not declared as exported.

For instance, I would like to be able to change the value of the Py_TabcheckFlag when running specific codelines.
Any chance this patch could be added ?

Py_TabcheckFlag has been removed from Python 3. This issue is specific to Python 2.7.

closing as this no real point in making something available in an EOL branch.

Right, Python 2.7 support is ending at the end of the year. Python 2.7 got 18 releases without Py_TabcheckFlag, you're the first to request it.

You should consider to upgrade to Python 3 and have a look at my PEP 587 "Python Initialization Configuration" ;-)

Python 2.7 doesn't accept new features anymore. The issue has been closed.
