>From previous discussion [1] it seems that it's not possible to raise
new-style objects. Does this effectively mean that it's impossible to
use anything with a metaclass as an exception? i.e., am I missing some
nifty trick that would allow me to do this in the meantime?

If not, does anyone anticipate this changing anytime soon?

Cheers and thanks,
