No, sys.excepthook won't be called for SystemExit:

py> help(sys)
Help on built-in module sys:
     excepthook -- called to handle any uncaught exception other than  

Unfortunately help(sys.excepthook) does not provide the same information,  
neither the docs for the sys module. (Should be corrected...)
