If exceptions are counted as built-ins, it certainly does work -- the 
interface package registers interfaces for the built-in Python 
exceptions and the Zope 3 framework relies on it for error pages. I 
ported this functionality to Zope 2 (in experimental code, FiveException 
  on the z3 base), and it works there too. :)
