I had the same thought, but it actually only works cleanly for the
"fetch" half of the equation. You'd have to muck around with actually
raising an exception to handle *setting* those fields, which is
*really* relying on implementation details). That said, it may be
worth further exploring the idea of invoking appropriate snippets of
Python code to get the desired effect.

My other question would be whether there's an existing *private* C API
with the desired behaviour that could be made public, or if this would
be a genuinely new addition to the API.
