nothrow only applies to Exception and its children. Error is a 
different branch.

Error means you have a programming error and cannot be caught and 
recovered (though the compiler allows it anyway, it reserves the 
right to just abort the program instead of actually going through 
the try/catch system), so it doesn't count as a normal exception, 
even though it is still thrown.

You are supposed to prevent Errors by fixing the bugs in your 
code, so in a final build they never happen.
