Just like with threads, why not cross that bridge when we get there?
Is it really worth it to penalize 99% of the people? When we port to
another compiler, it will be a lot simpler to worry about those pieces
of code, rather than have no code at all.
Also, not accepting code into Wine that depend on exception is one thing,
but what about Winelib? We can have the exception code commented out if
__WINESRC__ is defined, but at least lets get it in if it works, it will
plug a big Winelib hole.
