No no. Stop there. Exceptions are *totally* different from E_*.

Exactly. And that is the point.
Why would you be turning E_USER_* into exceptions if you don't want to
bail out of the current scope?

If you throw an exception from the error handler, what exactly do you
expect to happen?
I gave several reasons for why that simply is impossible, but I am
curious: what exactly are you expecting?

So you expect a scripting language to scroll up the entire execution
chain to see if there is a catch() block at all, and if there is no
catch() block, the simply ignore the exception and continue?
If thats your expectations then you are severely misunderstanding the
concept of exceptions.
