The -e flag enables the generation of try/catch blocks around *all* calls to 
wrapped functions for that module. You can include throw specifiers in .sip 
files. eg.

	void foo() throw (bar);

"bar" must also be defined as a wrapped class and is converted to a Python 
object when caught.

Try running with the -e flag added and have a look at the generated code.
