I have.
Didn't you get my (private) mail about this already ? I know your
address has been bouncing a couple of times, but I resent the message.

1) The thing will definitely NOT make it into 1.0.x, since that is a
   bugfix-only branch. We have a strict policy towards that.

2) As it is not thread-safe, and in 1.1.x the exception stack objects
   are allocated on the stack anyhow, the idea looses it's main purpose.
   (as far as we understand it, at least)
   The main reason we moved the exception objects to the stack is

You are of course free to implement it as an alternate heap manager,
the heap manager is implemented in such a way that this can be done
easily. But it will not be included in the distribution by default.
