You title and post don't seem to match.  The title says to expand the API and the post says there is no reason to expand the API.  Did you mean 'good reason'?  Also, I think you meant 'grab the traceback' (from the exception) rather than 'grab the exception'.

How would you get from here to there and change required etype, value, tb to just required value, without breaking old code?
