FWIW I already invented this :) as written in Issue 22247. Although I think I only used it once or twice in my own personal librarie(s). So it’s a nice sign that we came up with the same @public name and usage.

I’m not a fan of hacks depending on the calling frame, and I prefer APIs that “only do one thing”. So I am okay with accepting an object and work off its __name__ and __module__, but not okay with also accepting a string and guessing what module it was defined in.
