There's no guarantee that would work, because the exceptions would have to
propogate through gtk code, which is in C, not C++. It might work with
gcc/g++, but it might not work everywhere. (it wouldn't work using
CodeWarrior on the Mac, not that that's an issue here, just an example
that it _doesn't_ always work).
