 Hm, on reflection, I'm not sure that pycryptopp currently does anything
 with an exception from Crypto++ ''except'' re-raise it as a Python

 I hate, in principle to limit pycryptopp and its users to a single
 undifferentiated exception of type "exception from underlying library",
 when that underlying library is actually providing a carefully typed and
 informative exception.

 But, in practice, this might make no different to our current code.  I'll
 keep this in mind when returning to pycryptopp hacking after the
 tahoe-1.3.0 release.
