Sorry for the late reply (travelling). My comment wasn't clear, I was ranting
the import of the exception in the second module, non the less how it was
and not why it was not ok.
Basically, it was no better than leaving it where it was, spelled as it was and
requiring the user to import it from where it was defined. It turned out to be
some faulty logic in the second module where the __setattr__ call was made
that was preventing it from being set...
