There are two kind of early-stop. One is : "Stop the search". The other
one is : "Stop looking in this direction, but continue the search".

Throwing an exception may be a solution for the first category, but I
don't see how is could help for the second. Maybe another way to go for
the second would be to manually modify some well chosen colors in the
visitor functions, but this approach seemed to scary for me to try it.
