Agreed, if they have accessible C++ typenames. However, in the case that you
cannot access the exception by its C++ typename from your user/library code
(because the OS keeps it hidden for some reason; this would simulate
essentially the same effect as non-C++ SEH-exceptions), then you'd only be
able to use catch(...).
