Ping has a really nice patch to generate better error messages for
SyntaxError on SourceForge (#100734). This provides better messages,
but keeps all these errors as plain SyntaxError exceptions.
At one point, we were discussing having specializations of
SyntaxError, and I posted a patch that defined IndentationError and
TabError. With Ping's changes, using these instead of plain
SyntaxError is trivial. Should I include that, or only change the
error messages using Ping's patch?
