'''StackContext allows applications to maintain threadlocal-like state
that follows execution as it moves to other execution contexts.

The motivating examples are to eliminate the need for explicit
async_callback wrappers (as in tornado.web.RequestHandler), and to
allow some additional context to be kept for logging.

This is slightly magic, but it's an extension of the idea that an exception
handler is a kind of stack-local state and when that stack is suspended
and resumed in a new context that state needs to be preserved.  StackContext
shifts the burden of restoring that state from each call site (e.g.
wrapping each AsyncHTTPClient callback in async_callback) to the mechanisms
that transfer control from one context to another (e.g. AsyncHTTPClient
itself, IOLoop, thread pools, etc).

Example usage:
  def die_on_error():
      logging.error("exception in asynchronous operation", exc_info=True)

  with StackContext(die_on_error):
    # Any exception thrown here *or in callback and its desendents*
    # will cause the process to exit instead of spinning endlessly
    # in the ioloop.
    http_client.fetch(url, callback)

    '''Establishes the given context as a StackContext that will be transferred.

    Note that the parameter is a callable that returns a context
    manager, not the context itself.  That is, where for a
    non-transferable context manager you would say
      with my_context():
    StackContext takes the function itself rather than its result:
      with StackContext(my_context):
    old_contexts = _state.contexts

        # so a set may not be quite right.  Conversely, it's not very stack-like

        # ensure there are no existing contexts not in the stack being restored?
        # That feels right, but given the difficulty of handling errors at this
        # level I'm not going to check for it now.
