I'm open to suggestions.
errors_handling_test now "passes" for vc-8_0
incerease in size and running time (presumably)

since I've always felt it's the programmer's job to "make it right, THEN
make it small/fast/whatever" altering the exception handling model in the
compiler seemed the only choice..... afterall, IMO, divide by 0 _should_
be catchable in a C++ program (perhaps an extension to the core language is
in order?).
so, what to do? I suppose finding a solution in the test-framework,
build-system, or the bjam files would be preferable, but bbv1 is hopefully
going away, I'll learn bb when v2 is "official".

I haven't heard any screams coming from the testing community since I've
made the change to the toolset and since it fixed a problem that nobody
seemed to want to look at ...... <shrug>

someone else's call..... I'm only a "tester"
