Ok - and thanks. But we generate and execute code at runtime and need 
good error reporting for our users. If there is a performance 
implication we wouldn't want to have to set this flag just to be able to 
give our users useful tracebacks! The IP traceback handling is generally 
fine for us - but I haven't *confirmed* that IP 2 is worse - it just 
feels worse...

We have bigger problems anyway. Now I have ironed out the obvious 
problems, Resolver One runs on IP 2 but the user interface is completely 
broken. That is all pure-Python code so I have some digging to do... :-)
