Good point. Though I've objected to various things in that document
before, and people agreed (with some of my objections, at least), but
nothing ever happened.
I just went ahead and fixed the rules for try/catch, since everyone agreed
with the change when I brought it up before. Unfortunately, it looks like
the existing code uses the rule everyone agreed was broken. Sigh.
BTW, what was the rationale for this->func()? There isn't one in the
document. Inside templates, we will need to start qualifying all names
(not just functions) inherited from base classes with this->, so perhaps
it's simpler just to always do it.
