The corner case I was talking about was the one where you actually *want* the old, more restrictive behaviour (i.e. you specifically want to receive 'x.y.Exception' and receiving 'a.b.Exception' instead should fail), but still want to ignore the details of the exception string representation.

With this change in place, that corner case could be handled fairly easily by using the ELLIPSIS option instead of IGNORE_EXCEPTION_DETAIL (or else mandating the exception details as well the type).

This change trips my "feature" meter, so it's probably too late for 2.7 (adding Benjamin to confirm), but definitely a good candidate for 3.2 later in the year.
