Mostly looks good to me, but I think I'd prefer that attempts to clear a running frame raise RuntimeError with an appropriate message.

I also wonder how this might relate to Eric Snow's proposal to reference the currently executing function from the frame object (see issue 12857). It seems to me that the "f_func" pointer in that patch could serve the same purpose as the "f_executing" boolean flag in this patch, while providing additional information about the execution context.

Some other possibly relevant traceback related resource management issues: issue 6116, issue 1565525, issue 9815 (picked up while searching for Eric's RFE above)

(We may want to add a "clear_frames" convenience method to tracebacks as well)
