So here's a crude approach:

(defun python-shell-show-exception (buffer)
  (pop-to-buffer buffer))

(defun python-comint-show-exceptions (output)
    (when (re-search-backward "\\bTraceback (most recent call last):\n  File "
                              comint-last-output-start t)
      (python-shell-show-exception (current-buffer)))))

(add-hook 'inferior-python-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
            (add-hook 'comint-output-filter-functions

This will call `python-shell-show-exception' (which is just a simple stub here)
if a traceback is detected in the output buffer.

Matching on the regex is pretty crude, but I guess there's nothing much
better that can be done? You cannot assume it's the last output, and not the
first either, so the regex just tries to match the beginning of a traceback.

At first, it seems to work as intended. But clearly some better names/
customization is needed in order to let the user decide what to do in
case of exceptions.
