// used to enable exceptions for narrow windows.
// Make it easy to safely allow NSException to be thrown in a limited
// scope. Note that if an exception is thrown, then this object will
// not be appropriately destructed! If the exception ends up in the
// top-level event loop, things are cleared in -reportException:. If
// the exception is caught at a lower level, a higher level scoper
// should eventually reset things.
