Sure a try/except mechanism is doable in plain C. Wine already has such a
plain-C-mechanism in include/wine/exception.h. The problem is to make it
compatible with both Win32 SEH (which is different from setjmp/longjmp)
*and* MSVC-style __except(expr) syntax; the macros in
include/wine/exception.h, while complicated enough in their attempt to fit
setjmp/longjmp into SEH, only manage to implement one of them.
