Stack unwinding was but one example. There are many other real world use
cases where it's absolutely right to not examine state of a returning
object. This is why I said I don't personally see much usefulness for
such a thing.
However, I've agreed to implement it anyway. It might be useful in some
codebases, simple ones.
