Michael, what do you think about the following popular nested try-except-finally construct?
My understanding of your last statement is the above construct is superfluous. Did it what you mean? If yes, is it only true in objfpc mode?

In this particular case you don't need the finally at all.
If you catch the exception, code will execute normally after the except
block. You don't need the finally then.
