Good catch Serhiy - I'd completely missed that in the original review, and 
definitely agree we should make that fix independently of the exception 
chaining idea.

While that correction will fix the specific __getattr__ example given, we still 
have the problem of actual errors in looking up __set_name__ on the class (e.g. 
in a metaclass or in __getattribute__) and errors when calling it being hard to 
debug, as the traceback will point to the class header without giving the name 
of the offending attribute.
