    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
+   raised.
