I did some testing using pthreads on x86_64 Linux, and I've made the
following changes to the paper:

    * A new heading called 'Forced unwinding' under 'Design considerations'
    * I beefed out the bit about SEH exceptions, giving an example
using _set_se_translator
    * There are now two forms of the function 'typeid_except', one
with 0 parameters, and one with 1 parameter. See the paragraph at the
end of 'Forced unwinding' as to why this is necessary.

You can see the latest paper here:


And also it's attached to this email.
