I've been looking through the list of current keywords and the best syntax I could come up with for suppressing the context is:

    try:
        x / y
    except ZeroDivisionError as e:
        raise as Exception( 'Invalid value for y' )

The rationale is that it's saying "forget about the original exception (if any), raise _as though_ this is the original exception".
