To clarify: Doug wanted this so he could build using Python 3. I've
explained that we don't support Python 3 in the bindings, so it doesn't
really make sense to use it for building source either.

Further checking: the new exception syntax is new to Python 2.6.
Given that this script is only used in dev builds (not from tarballs),
someone remind me: what's our Py version requirement for dev builds?
It is not specified in INSTALL.
