wxWidgets can certainly support exceptions.

wxWidgets has a wxString class: but you can use a std::string as well;
and wxWidgets may well migrate to using std::string. Currently it is
forward compatible, to the extent that it implements most of the
std::string functions.

But I take the point that wxWidgets and MFC currently have native types
that (approximately) duplicate the std versions.
