handle BaseExceptions with middleware, or at least KeyboardInterrupt

I was trying to write a middleware which shows a 503 page on KeyboardInterrupt (which happens on django restart) and run into this.
If it is not handled some unlucky users get 500 error page and search bots go away for a while.

Patch needs improvement: set
Triage Stage: UnreviewedAccepted

BaseException was introduced in Python 2.5, and Django needs to support Python 2.4 (at least for now).

Patch needs to be updated to support the exception class heirarchy in Python 2.4, as well as Python 2.5+
