If I know that T::operator= has the strong guarantee, I know that foo
will always be in either of two states: either bar() succeeds, and it
has the new value returned by bar(), or it failed, and it has the old value.

If overloading were allowed to take foo, half-modify it, then fail, then
that wouldn't be true anymore.

Of course, what would be the point of exceptions is not to catch them?
