Of course there is, as I've shown performance difference results (repeated
link that also
include data for the case when the 'way around' is turned on...
The way around, as David has hinted, is the decoration of the pointer itself
or the operator() (MSVC++ __declspec( nothrow ), GCC __attribute__((
nothrow )), c++1x noexcept, non-standard/'optimized' throw()...)...
