Following this line of thought:

This could be implemented by having a something like a 
"debug_application_factory()" function in grokcore.startup that would 
just after setting up the application register the IReRaise adapter for 

I can even imagine actually configuring what exceptions not to reraise 
from the debug.ini file somehow, to make this more readable/findable.

Again, this would make all other deployments and testing situations 
behave "normally" and only when using the exception middleware do 
something different. I'd prefer that, now that I'm working with it.
