New submission from Jonas H. <jonas at lophus.org>:

Use case: Try to get a future's result using concurrent.futures.Future.result(), and log the full exception if there was any.

Currently, only "excinst" (sys.exc_info()[1]) is provided with the Future.exception() method.

Proposal: Add new Future.exc_info() method that returns the full sys.exc_info() at the time of the exception.
