Looking at the sources for GCC's libsupc++, I think it'll return an
abi::__forced_unwind type. Likewise, if it's a foreign exception, the type
will be abi::__foreign_exception. See:

libc++abi does not have this; it's a libsupc++ extension to the IA-64 ABI
requirements. In fact, I don't know if libc++abi handles the forced unwind
case well, or at all.
