Last time I used 2to3 (maybe not the latest version) it didn't know
what to do with string exceptions. I'd suggest converting

# py 2
raise 'my string'


# py 3
raise Exception( 'my string' )

And notifying the user that this conversion has been done so that
he/she can take appropriate action, i.e. this conversion should not
pass silently.
