Python 3.6.5 ...
>>> Exception('foo',)
Exception('foo',)

Python 3.7.0b4 ...
>>> Exception('foo',)
Exception('foo')

This is a change that might bit people who rely on doctesting.

It is not documented at https://docs.python.org/3.7/whatsnew/3.7.html

I'll send a PR.

This was done in issue30399, and I was not sure that this change is worth adding in What's New. Add a reference to the issue.

I was bit by this, so that's why I think this is worth documenting. https://github.com/testing-cabal/testtools/issues/270
