For "can't tell" in my previous message, read "we aren't going to impose the requirement to be able to tell if an exception is being raised directly in the current exception handler as a feature of conforming Python implementations". We probably *could* tell the difference in CPython if we really wanted to.

Even without considering that aspect, it would also be seriously odd if putting the exception raising into a helper function suddenly caused context information to be included that was otherwise implicitly suppressed. Much better to correctly support explicit suppression of the context as discussed earlier in the issue.
