Setting of attributes of sys module raises internal exceptions (java.lang.IllegalAccessException) in case of some attributes.
Amongst non-internal exceptions, there is inconsistency: AttributeError, TypeError.

$ cat set_attributes_of_sys_module.py
import sys
import traceback
for x in dir(sys):
  try:
    setattr(sys, x, getattr(sys, x))
  except:
    print("\x1B[1;31mSetting of sys.%s failed\x1B[0m" % x)
    traceback.print_exc()
  else:
    print("\x1B[1;32mSetting of sys.%s succeeded\x1B[0m" % x)

Agreed, these should be raised as AttributeError instead of java.lang.IllegalAccessException

Should be an easy fix in PySystemState#__setattr__ (and also __delattr__)
