I am against the use of macros in general, and their
abuse in particular. Macros are invasive, and very
often lead to obcsure code.

In this case, the problem isn't macros but exception
specifications, which are considered as a Bad Thing by
some people (Dave and probably others).

opinions when the number of quotations grows.
