i've noticed differences between 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 wrt: handling a
SyntaxError exception. Which behavior is correct?

Here is the scenario:

bad_syntax.py:
hello"

build_py.py:
import sys

try:
	py_compile.compile('bad_syntax.py')
	print "after compile"
except:
	print "compile error"

now the output:

python1.5.1:
compile error

python1.5.2:
File "bad_syntax.py", line 1
    hello"
         ^
SyntaxError: invalid token
after compile
