The costs of throwing an exception is well described in Scott Meyer's Item
15 "More Effective C++". The key guidelines
presented were :
         a) ... exceptions should be rare. After all, they indicate the
occurrence of events that are exceptional.
         b) Compared to a normal function return, returning from a function
by throwing an exception may be as much as three orders of magnitude slower.

I would hope the "TerminatorFunc" or predicate would be added, at some point
in time.
