If you are going to remove *all* exceptions, you cannot use "new" or STL 
containers any more because those things can throw exceptions. You would 
have to rewrite almost everything. Is this really what you want?

Probably not. You cannot ignore exceptions either, because unhandled 
exceptions will terminate() the program. So you *have* to catch them. 
And since you have to pay for exception handling anyway, you might as 
well use it.
