I'm really glad this work is going to get done.  This is one of the
(few) good things about how long it's taking to get 3.0 out -- this is
really great functionality to have.

I'm not sure what you mean.  THROW_EXPRs should be treated exactly the
same until cplus_expand_expr, which happens during tree->rtl
conversion.  If your patch changes the C++ front-end's tree
representation, that's probably a bad thing.  If it doesn't, I don't
see how the front-end would know to issue this error message.

Yes, I think that's what's wrong.  In build_throw you do a lot of work
that should really be done in cplus_expand_expr, I think.  The idea is
to keep things at a relatively high-level until expansion time.  Or,
perhaps, until tree-optimization time.  In any case, not right up
front.  (Ideally, I would eventually like to build a representation
that is unlowered C++, then lower it to C-plus-magic, then optimize
it, then generate RTL.)

I'm not going to have a chance to look at your patch right away; I
hope Jason can.  The change to current_binding_level looks suspicious
to me.  Also, you've still got a comment about partial-array
construction in except.c; is that still a problem?
