Reraise an exception, possibly with a different traceback. In the simple
case, ``reraise(*sys.exc_info())`` with an active exception (in an except
block) reraises the current exception with the last traceback. A different
- traceback can be specified with the *exc_traceback* parameter.
+ traceback can be specified with the *exc_traceback* parameter. Note that
+ since the exception reraising is done within the :func:`reraise` function,
+ Python will attach the call frame of :func:`reraise` to whatever traceback is
