Hi Gordon,

Yes. If body calls another metafunction, that has to be instrumented too
(or be prepared for handling exceptions). When a metafunction "throws"
an exception, every metafunction in the "call-chain" needs to be
instrumented until the point the exception is handled. When an exception
is propagated to a metafunction that is not instrumented, it causes a
compilation error. Instrumentation guarantees that no metafunctions in
the instrumented expression are called with exceptions as their arguments.
