I'd be +1 on this; AssertionError is not the right exception for this situation. Bumping to accepted.

(In [6838]) Fixed #3511 -- Changed QuerySet.get() to return a MultipleObjectsReturned exception, rather than an assertion error. Thanks, Gary Wilson and cheeming.

Thanks to Bjorn as well, we were pairing this during the Dec 2007 sprint

Shouldn't that exception inherit from AssertionError for backwards compatibility?

No, it shouldn't. It's not an assertion error (assertion errors are things that should never, ever happen and, if they do, it's a programmer error). You can have missing database objects in the normal course of events.
