[fpc-devel] Is -Sx supposed to be equivalent to {$modeswitch exceptions}?

The compiler help message says that -Sx "Enables exception keywords",
but if I use -Sx along with a try/except block I get:

Error: identifier not found "try"

If I instead use {$modeswitch exceptions} it works fine. (I'm compiling
in FPC mode).

Is this the expected behavior?
