I think that would have a rather bad effect on C++ and Java code.

One of the nice things about the current approach is that it is very
fine grained -- ie, the flag bit appears on SSA_NAMEs and thus has
a relatively limited affect on optimization.

Your approach would in effect penalize all other instances of a _DECL
just because one instance happened to flow through an EH edge.
