The host language in this case is newCTFE-IR.
And that is intentionally quite close to what a simple RISC 
processor would provide.
As it is supposed to be just-in-time compile-able with minimal 
Therefore it does not provide exception handling support, and 
likely never will.
Since that would mean every backend would have to provide a way 
to stack catch-clauses and such.
