No no, that's just *too* nasty.

But there are times now and then when, perhaps, you're working
remotely, and you have to figure out what's wrong without exception
tracebacks. Sure, 95% of programmers will never be in that situation,
but it's a good skill to have. And when that disaster _does_ strike
and you're stuck with just a file uploader and a crashing script,
you'll look awesome for being able to fix it in five minutes flat :)
