Well, wait a minute.  Is Nick's third revision of his
AttributeError/NameError enhancement still on the table?  If so,
exceptions.py is the right place to put it.  In that case, I would recommend
that exceptions.py still be the file that is loaded.  It would take care of
importing _exceptions.

Oh, BTW.. +1 on Nick's latest version.
