One possible approach is to revert BaseException out of Py2.5, re-position KeyboardInterrupt, and add Error as an alias for StandardError. Then we can encourage people to start using Error as the base classes for their own errors.
Also maybe start issuing warnings whenever you inherit directly from Exception.
