Since 'raise' means 're-raise the current error', 'raise as OtherError' 
means (clearly to me, anyway) 're-raise the current error as 
OtherError'. This is just what you want to be able to say. Since 'raise' 
without a current error results in a TypeError, so should 'raise as 
OtherError'. I would just go with this as the proposal.
