I've seen no evidence of that whatsoever. Exceptions, like GC,
are a proven winner in the real world with the vast majority of
actually existing industry code using them successfully.
Reminder that exceptions were invented because error codes
*cannot* say the same thing.
There are some new techniques being tried out in some places to
varying levels of success. Those features are useful for other
purposes too, so I wouldn't mind D picking some of them up, like
I said in a previous message.
But even with those available, I expect that error handling mode
will remain relatively niche because of the enormous success
exceptions have and have had proven in industry.
