So make GoodByeException.__init__ call reactor.stop() instead of setting the useless 'args' attribute.

This is bad form, however.  Particular types of exception should not stop the reactor.  Code that wants the reactor to stop, should call reactor.stop.  Maybe you could make a method that both calls reactor.stop() *and* raises an exception.
