Now that I think about it, I believe the initial copy of the exception
object must logically be seen as a *part* of the evaluation of the
throw-expression. Otherwise, i.e. if you make it a separate step, you
either have to say that the temporary A() is not destroyed at the end
of its full expression (the throw) or say that it is destroyed before
you get a chance to copy it to a safe place. Don't you agree?
