Thank you for putting it up Dmitry.

As I wrote into the blueprint,
if there are requests to implement API aborting introspection from
we should introduce this feature as API, I think.

But if we just want to use this feature as debug,
we had better not to introduce it as API.
And, instead of introducing as API,
I suppose implement only client library and call it from shell script or
something like "tool".

Best Regards,
Yuiko Takada
