Exceptions create walls to reusing code

Joe Beda has "some theories as to why C++ hasn't developed the same set of libraries that other environments such as Perl, Python, Java, C#, etc. have. [...]

Code written to deal with exceptions doesn't interop well with code that turns exceptions off. [...] In any case, the result is that these are walls to reusing code."

Watch out for exception confusion, PHP 5!
