Reanalysing the code, I now understand why "raise" is used
in "raise_standardErrorMessage":

  It should pass the information from the repeated request
  up to "publish_module_standard".

  There, "response.exception()" is called for the original
  response which should set its status based on the
  exception raised in the repeated request.

Unfortunately, "ZServer.HTTPRequest.HTTPRequest"
does not look at the original request but at the final
repeated request...

A nasty workaround may be, to call "response.exception"
for the repeated request as well.
In order not to make implementations assumptions,
this should be done in "Zope.App.startup.zpublisher_exception_hook":

  The complete block starting with

            log = aq_acquire(published, '__error_log__', containment=1)
  and ending just before the "finally:"

  may be wrapped into a

        response = getattr(REQUEST, 'response', None)
        if response is not None:

Of course, the complete handling is so complex that is cries
out for simplification rather than further nasty workarounds...
