For this one my reply is similar  :D

Why this is so important that we should get the exception & go in after FF? We need to delay the Alpha release because of this late addition if we agree to take this in. It seems this shouldn't cause that big delay but you never know... And taking this in between Alpha and beta doesn't sound that well to me either; as written before all known features should be in Alpha...

+1 from my side. It doesn’t have dependencies on any other code, so it can’t break anything else neither.
