9.3.7 Exceptions as types

This AI originally arose out of a workshop organized by Ada-Europe. The proposal was quite complex and had awkward interactions with existing facilities. It was considered far too radical a change and probably expensive to implement. As a consequence it was slimmed down considerably (see AI-264). But having been slimmed down it seemed pointless and was then abandoned. The only part to survive was the idea of raise with message which became a separate AI and was incorporated into Ada 2005.
