I didn't loose half a day to this one, but I did loose at least
fifteen minutes.  And I'm a fairly experienced Zope/Python programmer.

Furthermore, I do not in general run in debug mode during development.
Most of the time I am developing with continual customer review, and
the customers get confused and worried if the tracebacks appear on
the error pages, so it's easier just to not use debug mode.  I do,
however, run with stupid log enabled.  So if it is unacceptable to
have a more informative non-debug message, it would be nice to have
something show up in the stupid log.
