Geez, this is a pretty bad idea security-wise.  Your xCGI Python
function has a docstring and is therefore web-callable, so basically
you're letting anyone who can access your Zope instance run any program
on your server by passing it in as the cmdLine, e.g.
http://yourserver/ExecCGI?cmdLine=rm%20-rf%20*.  I know that's not your
problem right now, but you should reconsider this decision at some

I *think* this error message is telling you that it can't format the
status code as an integer in your raise statement.  Why don't you take
out your status checking code and see what happens.
