I'mna let y'all discuss this.  I was just the hacker, nothing else.
Ulrich Drepper and rth asked me to work on this for Uli's libpthread
rewrite for glibc.  (Not that this is a valid argument, but a few
other compilers have try/finally for C :-)).

Meanwhile I'll keep iteracting with Joseph Myers, rth, etc over
documentation changes ;-).
