I believe it is important to remember that C++ is also a "glue"
language meaning that it is also used to pack different applications
together.  One implication is that it ought to be possible for a C++
program to catch exceptions from foreign languages.  I cannot imagine
that the notion of "ghost" exceptions will make it.
