Personally I think that C++ exceptions should only be used to signal
critical situations for the future execution of the program, not as a
normal matter of program flow control.

However, I think the ErrorHandler is a good idea, and have no problems 
with exceptions being thrown for the cases where one haven defined and 
registered an ErrorHandler.
