That's crap.  It's not you who gets the blame.  Anything but an
automatic handling of the rethrow means that there will be people not
rethrowing the code which in turn means that sooner or later they will
run into problems.  Not only will this be a nightmare to debug, but it
also just mean that those lusers demand that it is possible to write
such code since C++ exceptions allow it.  Your "good C++ code measure"
is nothing but a recommendation.
