I think typed exceptions are a good idea, but something looks wrong with these.

(Also, having a large number of exception types is going to produce a lot of 
program size bloat. Remember, for EVERY class type, you've got the vtbl[], the 
.init data, and the TypeInfo. Going to town on exception types can really add 
this up.)
