  It relies on "ZPublisher.Publish" hacking
  in order to learn when requests get started and finished.

  Based on these "events", the set of currently worked
  on requests is maintained. An independent thread
  periodically monitors this set, identifies long
  running requests and calls configured handlers for them.

  The traceback logging handler looks like:

     from threadframe import dict as getFrames
     def handler(req, handlerState, globalState):
       threadId = req.threadId
       LOG('RequestMonitor.DumpTrace', WARNING, 'Long running request',
           'Request %s "%s" running in thread %s since %ss\n%s' % (,,
         handlerState.monitorTime - req.startTime,

Thus, for general availability, we would need "start_publishing"
and "finish_publishing" hooks in "ZPublisher".

And, as we speak about replacing Zope2's ZPublisher
by Zope3's Publisher, the old Zope2 ZPublisher will
probably not grow such hooks any more -- but hopefully,
the Zope3 Publisher will signal corresponding events.
