For future reference, a better initial post would have been more self-contained and explanatory, something like the following.  (If I got the proposal wrong, all the more reason to explain it clearly).
Several functions in the traceback module take a *limit* argument to limit output to the first n 'stack trace entries'.  This issue proposes that negative limits should instead limit output to the last n entries. This idea was discussed on python ideas and approved by Guido there.

Do the new tests pass with n=0?  If not, do the functions have a sensible behavior (print header and no entries, rather than raising) that could be tested?
