Need mechanism for disabling exception supression when running in test context

BaseHandler.get_response is currently an exception black hole - if an exception occurs anywhere in a Django application there appears to be no circumstance in which it will not be turned in to an HttpResponse of some sort - the DEBUG setting merely influences if the error message is highly descriptive (in debug mode) or user-friendly.

This is great for 99% of situations, but is an absolute nuisance when using in-process testing against Django, for example using django.test.client.Client.

It would be really useful if there was a way of telling Django to raise any exceptions caught in that last naked 'except' clause (line 108), for purposes of unit testing.
