I would like to add my voice to Claudio, Glebas, and Jan in their
dislike of an explicit delete or release of an exception object.
I can also confirm that the approach outlined above is proper
and correct C++ usage.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work in MSVC++ V5. No compiler errors, but
the exception doesn't get caught. I haven't checked out g++, but the
question, I fear, is moot.

Anybody have any ideas?
