Ah.  So you did.

Okay, if I'm understanding correctly, the scenario you are talking about involves the code in the except block calling some other function, and that other function is raising an exception...  seems unlikely that this would be a case of transforming one exception into another, therefore the raise should not suppress the context by default...  okay, I'll concede the point.

Looks like the best option, then, is Nick's idea of the .no_context() method on exceptions.
