Getting thread dump from running process

There is no way to obtain a thread dump of a running process while running or debugging in IDEA. It seems that this would be quite easy to do (kill -QUIT in unix, or ctrl-break on the PC). Surely there is some programatic way to get a thread dump of a program being run or debugged.

I know I can pause the program in the debugger and do an export threads, but that usually isn't what I want.

I posted this as a Feature Request:
