[PyQt] Qt Exception Translation in Signal Handlers

I guess I don't see how setting a custom sys.excepthook will help me in this
case. I would like the exception that is raised to be recognized as a test
failure. The best that I could do is add some sort of a hack that attempts
to manually inject the error into the currently running test in a custom
sys.excepthook. Are there any other potential methods of accomplishing this?
