what I wrote here is nonsense. if the user "break"s in a self-defined
catch(isolation_exception &) clause like you've shown above, the
user's loop is affected. the value of __control is set correctly. if
the user rethrows, the value doesn't matter.

...unless we wanted to make the keywords "begin", "retry" and "end".
I'm in favor if simple keywords, C++'s "try" and "catch" aren't very
specific either. but unfortunately "begin" and "end" are used in STL
