Even for 3.4 it looks too late.

But I afraid we can't change this behavior never. Users of spwd don't expect 
any exception, raising an exception will break any existing code.

Only one safe way is design new API and deprecate old API. This will be great 
refactoring, it should also change APIs of the pwd and grp modules, perhaps 
these three modules should be merged, perhaps we should cross-platform API 
(available on Windows).
