I see.  So in the wrapper layer for each Python callback, you want to check
whether an exception occurred, and if so, tell Python to print it
(pretending that it has popped all the Python stack frames at that point.

So you need the C equivalent of:


I don't know what this is, but hopefully someone else will chime in.
