Well, that's nice for testing, but it's not very cool for the build
system in general -- enabling asynch exceptions has a significant
performance cost. We need a different solution, like making
<asynch-exceptions> a real feature (as I did recently for BBV2) and
making it part of the test lib's requirements. We probably ought to
put it in the "run" testing rule as a requirement on the executable
generated as well.

Probably just maintenance drift, but you can crawl the CVS history to
find out how it happened for sure.
