It must therefore not be self obvious? Darn. I had thought it very

much explaining, anyway.

There is a test custom domain at

But how about a mini-tutorial on building a custom code domain whose
status code wraps any arbitrary thrown C++ exception? It looks like SG14
and WG21 is going to need one of those in any case.
