"unraisablehook" name comes from the existing PyErr_WriteUnraisable().

I understood that "unraisable" means that the function calling
PyErr_WriteUnraisable() cannot "raise" the exception to its caller.
The exception has to be "swallowed" by the function.


If you like the feature, please review my PR :-)


Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.
