Base exception class. Used exceptions derive from this. If an exception derives from another exception besides this (such as Underflow (Inexact, Rounded, Subnormal) that indicates that it is only called if the others are present. This isn't actually used for anything, though. handle -- Called when context._raise_error is called and the trap_enabler is not set. First argument is self, second is the context. More arguments can be given, those being after the explanation in _raise_error (For example, context._raise_error(NewError, '(-x)!', self._sign) would call NewError().handle(context, self._sign).) To define a new exception, it should be sufficient to have it derive from DecimalException.
