I don't think it's helpful to make such a literalistic interpretation. Just because the variable is called "traceback" doesn't mean it should apply only to the things that are *technically* a traceback (and I don't agree anyway that the line containing the exception isn't part of the "traceback").

> I guess you're saying that the __context__ exception of the TypeError in your example has an empty traceback, which means it was never raised

Does it mean that? Again, __traceback__ isn't documented anywhere, so I don't know what it being None really means.

All I know is that it apparently disables the printing of tracebacks in the traceback module, but fails to omit the exception line itself, leading to an unreadable traceback in my example.
