As I explained in issue 17947, I think that any Python implementation worth its salt should be able to implement sys.get_calling_module_name() (*), at least for the case where the caller is top-level code in a module body.  That is a much weaker requirement than being able to implement sys._getframe().  We should just add this to CPython 3.4 and require that conforming implementations support it, at least in the stated context (top-level caller).

(*) Please pick a somewhat shorter name for it.
