shows how exceptions can be thrown in C++ with "what"
set. If you follow the example, you will see the "what"
text in Python, e.g.:
RuntimeError: Here is your message.
The example runs one many different platforms, including VC6.
I believe the double-destruction requirement applies to
(some of?) your objects that are destructed when the
stack is unwound.
