Why should this work?  From the docs... "Python programmers issue  
warnings by calling the warn() function defined in this module. (C  
programmers use PyErr_WarnEx; see Exception Handling for details)."

Check out the warnings.catch_warnings context manager, but if you have  
any further questions please direct them to the normal Python mailing  
list, this is for development _of_ Python only.
