Hi Peter,

Thanks for the patch.

However, it goes against a previous change.  Some time in the past
Christian removed sending of exception instances, and replaced it with
sending types and arguments.  If the reasoning behind his change was
because of problems it caused, then that would of course rule out any
possibility of reversing it.

Out of curiosity, can you give some examples of where you find it
useful to do this?

Cheers,
Richard.
