You didn't show what my_exception looks like.

"Trying?" Of course I'm doing something similar, but I'm confused by
the question: I was the one who pointed this technique out to you.
Surely you grabbed most of your code out of Boost.Python (?)

Anyway, the point of my exercise was to extract the mechanism into an
easy-to-use general-purpose library with as little overhead as
possible (e.g. no dynamic allocations are forced). If we still think
there's a point in having such a general library (at least in detail),
your particular interface choices could be implemented on top of it.
