The article you linked to doesn't mention typedefs, it's about the
alleged harmfulness of exceptions
(and it seems poor Joel just didn't understand Resource Acquisition is
Initialization in C++ or try-finally
in Java/C#).

Am I right to assume that with "strong typedef" you mean something like
a typedef, but where
each identifier defined in this way is an actual type and not just an alias?

Best regards,
