Very impressive (and very ugly, but messing with compiler internals is
like that).

I looked into GCC's language support library, but it seems that GCC
doesn't store the copy constructor of the thrown object anywhere -
neither in the exception header, nor in the type info. This is very
unfortunate, since it means that a similar implementation is not
possible for GCC.
