Patch to add -a/--attach option to Lib/test/regrtest.py to pause before beginning test runs. This would allow a user to attach Visual Studio or some other debugger. Very simply, this option just blocks waiting for a keystroke during argument parsing - once you're ready, hit any key.

My use case is with Visual Studio, where I've wanted to debug C code used by tests and would prefer to attach to an external command prompt, rather than have to initiate the test from within VS.
