> Richard, wasn't the change a different one?  In the old days, passing an exception instance to channel.send() would magically raise it on the receive() end.  I think he added the send_exception() to explicitly send an exception.

Not 100% sure, that's why I bring it up :-)

I tracked down the thread:

Well, I missed the ability to do this when it was removed, but these
days I am unable to think of any situation where it would be cleaner
than sending the type and arguments to be raised.
