When the thread is not supposed to be joined, then all expected
exceptions [e.g. thread cancelation or exit] should be caught
(but "ignored") and all unexpected exceptions should still
terminate the entire process at throw point (that's not the way
how exception specification work currently). Some exceptions
listed in this or that throw spec may be expected and some not.
(Perfect forwarding might help somewhat here. ;-) )
