Richard, you will notice that python's "raise" operator can take anything from 0 to three arguments.
The first two can be:
- class and instance of class
- class and arguments (tuple, None, or any object)
- instance and None

The third, if given, is an associated traceback to extend
No arguments will raise the current exception.

How does it sound to have send_exception() emulate this three argument behaviour?
