OK, TerminatingException and the removal of bare 'except' clauses are now out.

I also stripped out the transition plan to basically just add
BaseException in Python 2.5, tweak docs to recommend future-proof
practices, and then change everything in Python 3.0 .  This will
prevent any nasty performance hit from what was being previously
suggested to try to make it all backwards-compatible.
