Please calm down and don't be so rude. Andrei doesn't have a clue
how exceptions work? He just wants to apply his template schtick
to everything? Give me a break.

I find this discussion rather interesting (and I look forward to
hearing Andrei's thoughts on H. S. Teoh's condition handler
idea), but I think if all you want is to attack the idea of even
discussing this, your voice has already been heard.
