[Python-Dev] GeneratorExit inheriting from Exception

+- KeyboardInterrupt
+- GeneratorExit
+- SystemExit
+- StopIteration

This would look even better to me and be easier to learn and remember if 
the above specifics were gathered under one general category parallel to 
Error and Warning.  Not sure what.  Not NonErrorNonWarning though. 
SystemException is too long and too specific.  Maybe Control?

No, I don't have a specific use other than didactic, but that is worth 
something, and I can imagine that someone else might.

+- Error
|  +- ImportError
|  +- (etc.)
+- Warning
   +- UserWarning
   +- (etc.)

Otherwise, looks good to me.
