It is. The personality routine computes the transformed pointer
as part of the type matching phase. It stores this pointer in a
c++ language private superclass of _Unwind_Exception. Which is
then returned by __cxa_begin_catch.

The ABI. IIRC when I implemented this, I talked to one of the
HP guys and they do the same thing.
