This is a great and useful change! Thanks for noticing and addressing this!

I would recommend:

  1. fixing the FIXME I left later in the file by making TypedDatatypeInstanceConstructionError subclass TypeError (and then fixing any tests, or looking for tests that catch Exception and make them catch a TypeError instead — not clear if those exist (update: looks like they do not!)),
  2. then use the classmethod make_type_error() (not necessary, but consistent error messages are neat and one way to do that is to use a common method),
  3. and I would probably want to add the exception e as the second argument to the re-raised TypeError so that the full stack trace is preserved (I think that’s how it works?? make_type_error() should forward the argument to the TypeError ctor correctly).

Alternatively, if any of the above seems totally unnecessary, feel free to exterminate or improve it. Also let me know if any of the above isn’t clear.
