You know, this is the first explanation of exceptions I have seen that
actually makes sense. I could never figure out what they were and why
they were. It always looked like it was just a special subset of errors,
a distinction without a difference, as it were. But looking at them as a
technique to move the handlers out of the mainline code actually shines
some real light on the subject.
