Would it be possible to modify the default implementation of sys.excepthook to have a different output when it's not called from the main thread? Mimick the current traceback from threads.

Would it be possible to call threading.current_thread() from the default sys.excepthook? The problem is to get the threading module and to decide how to handle error on getting the current thread.

An alternative would be to introduce a new hook to log exceptions in threads, ex: sys.threadexcepthook. That hoook would take a 4th parameter. But Andrey Vlasovskikh didn't like this idea.
