    """Returns a dictionary of the calling functions 
       parameter names and values.

       The optional arguments can be used to filter the result:

           only           use this to only return parameters 
                          from this list of names.

           exclude        use this to return every parameter 
                          *except* those included in this list
                          of names.

           ignore         use this inside methods to ignore 
                          the calling object's name. For 
                          convenience, it ignores 'self' 
                          by default.
