I agree with your use case.
Just today, I was writing python code to wrap and reraise exceptions, albeit not having to do with channels

class WrappedException(Exception): pass

except Exception:
	raise WrappedException(sys.exc_info())
except WrappedException, e:
	raise self.wrapped.args[1], None, self.wrapped.args[2]

If your patch doesn't already do so, I'd suggest that send_exception can take up to three arguments, with the same semantics as "raise"
