I strongly believe that the language "if an exception is thrown there
are no effects" is better than talking about the strong guarantee,
because eventually you get into variations like these:

> "If an exception is thrown, there are no effects other than those
> of <user-supplied operation>"

> "If an exception is thrown other than by <user-supplied operation>,
> there are no effects"

and the basic language used is the same.
