Yes, apparently so. However, we're currently busy with getting Cython 0.16
out of the door and I didn't find the time so far to set up a PyPy
development environment to do anything useful with it.

I'd be glad if this could get finished soon, because then I could finally
merge the Cython side of this into mainline. This has been a major blocker
for a while now, and exception handling or generators aren't exactly rare
features in user code.
