Just to be clear, what are you proposing?

1. Hold off merging py.code, implementing on top of that branch an
alternative exception representation?
2. Merge py.code and work on an alternative exception representation?

To be honest I would prefer 2, as this would stop blocking issues which are
waiting for py.code to be merged into pytest.
