I do not think it is solved in python-bindings. I've just tested:
when exception is raised, YaST logs an error. But it does not crash

IMO it would be nice if error was logged anytime an exception is
caught by ruby-bindings.

Having the last_error or maybe even last_exception (with details)
method would be definitely a good approach.

When pkg-bindings catch an exception from libzypp the invoked Pkg::
call returns nil and Pkg::LastError() and Pkg::LastErrorDetails()
return the details about the error.

Libzypp exceptions are automatically logged by libzypp when they are
thrown (pkg-bindings do not have to do anything special).

I think a similar way can be used also in Ruby bindings.

That sounds interesting. I just need to clarify two questions here:

1) you control Pkg...but ruby bindings doesn't control module written
in Ruby, so we should use some specific to not overwrite module
method...maybe LastException is good enough.

2) what you include in LastErrorDetails? backtrace? Does anyone use it?
