Of course I read it, I wouldn't have asked otherwise.  Eric mentions an older message ("see msg182332") that *predates* your judgment that "outside importlib there shouldn't be a need to distinguish between the cases".  Otherwise Eric says that he finds "the exception to be very useful", but frankly, I don't see why (outside of importlib or backports of it).  What changed since msg192263?
