Since PEP 338 we can run python modules as a script via `python -m module_name` but there is no way to run pdb on those (AFAIK).

The proposal is to add a new argument "-m" to the pdb module to allow users to run `python -m pdb -m my_module_name`

This is especially useful when working on cli tools that use entrypoints in setup.py, as there is no other way to run them.


I have a WIP here: https://github.com/mariocj89/cpython/commit/f47d1b779333657d7d87b21db841d5d3ad6cfa5c

Haven't sent the PR as I am still polishing some issues. If it sounds like a good idea I'll clean it up and open the PR.
