I strongly disagree with this.

CTFE is explicitly not supposed to be a separate universe with 
its own standards of behavior; it's supposed to just be 
"functions, executed at compiletime". Crucially, the *same* 
functions as at runtime, hence opening up the use of Phobos.

Phobos, which silently throws and catches exceptions internally.
