Yes, but this means that the __traceback__ attribute
couldn't be *the* way of handling tracebacks in Py3k.
The old way would still have to be there, and the new
way could only ever be a convenience feature that
might not be available and might not work properly
if it is.

That doesn't seem like a tidy situation to me.
Py3k is supposed to me making things cleaner, not
more messy.
