Wouldn't it be better therefore to just make this change for >= 3.1. Even though 3.0 isn't supported is it really necessary to break it knowingly?

Nice.

ls /opt/Python-3.2a3/lib/python3.2/site-packages/dbus/exceptions.p*

/opt/Python-3.2a3/lib/python3.2/site-packages/dbus/exceptions.py
/opt/Python-3.2a3/lib/python3.2/site-packages/dbus/exceptions.pyo
/opt/Python-3.2a3/lib/python3.2/site-packages/dbus/exceptions.pyc

The error was making me think I needed to tell the module about exceptions in the c api somehow, but as I said I couldn't find anything on it or even a good reference for the error.

No, i don't have commit access as far as I know. I can post a revised patch later today however.
