Yeah, that's a bit of a bummer. I'm modifying libexcs.tex right now. I will add a comment to exceptions.c noting that the tex source has to be updated if the hierarchy changes. Some enterprising person could probably add a little magic to Doc/Makefile to automatically update the .tex file from the .c file, but I doubt it will change that often.
I think the more correct way to do this would be to run help(exceptions) from Doc/Makefile and snatch the class hierarchy that Ping generates for use in the .tex file. I'd then advocate that the module doc string simply refer to the libref docs for the hierarchy.
