A candidate implementation is up at SF. Patch # 1038256.

It uses the name 'special_exceptions' and includes SystemExit, MemoryError,
KeyboardInterrupt and StopIteration (adding/removing exceptions from the list is
easy, as is changing the name).

One version of the patch creates 'exceptions.special_exceptions' only, and the
other version also creates a builtin.
