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.
