[Python-Dev] StreamHandler eating exceptions

The StreamHandler available under the logging package is currently
catching all exceptions under the emit() method call. In the
Handler.handleError() documentation it's mentioned that it's
implemented like that because users do not care about errors
in the logging system.

I'd like to apply the following patch:

Index: Lib/logging/__init__.py
--- Lib/logging/__init__.py     (revision 41357)
+++ Lib/logging/__init__.py     (working copy)

                 except UnicodeError:
                     self.stream.write(fs % msg.encode("UTF-8"))
+        except KeyboardInterrupt:
+            raise

Anyone against the change?
