I reacted to the comment of Walter Bright about exceptions in the 
"Destroy All Memory Corruption" presentation. The point he made 
that exceptions don't play well with compile time data flow 
analysis. He also mentioned that he thinks that exception will 
become obsolete in the future. Exceptions are used in many 
languages today and even the newest ones so I can't see a trend 

That raises the question what method is going to replace 
exceptions in that case?
Will D introduce an alternative method of error handler that 
plays better with @live?
