Perhaps you are looking for an interrupt handler rather than a
(Python) exception handler. (When interrupt handlers resume,
execution continues with the next instruction.) Such are hardware
specific and best written in assembler or machine-specific C. Whether
you could write an interrupt handler that usefully interacts with a
running Python program via the Python-C API is beyond my knowledge.
