Unfortunately I was posting my first response to the wrong place.

Wouldn't it be a viable alternative to leave out the swallowed
exceptions just
in debug build?
At least the original posters intent (as I understand it) was to get
useful information
propagated to the debugger.
As a pragmatic approach we just could try to run a regression cycle with the
catch-all removed and measure how many modules are failing because of
this. If the outcome shows no big difference the catch-all could be simply
What do you think? Is this feasible?
