What's the clean way to extract the message that passes the 
nothrow argument? Do I really have to embed another try catch?

I didn't even know it had a `message`... you should be able to pull the `.msg` member directly though, which is a simple string and not a function at all. http://dpldocs.info/experimental-docs/object.Throwable.html

I think that message was added recently for the folks at Sociomantic, because they want to be able to reuse buffers for exception messages rather than passing them as string like is normally done. So, they can override message to provide the message instead of using msg. I have no idea why it wouldn't be nothrow though. That was probably an oversight. Regardless, if you're not doing anything with overriding message in your own code, then using msg should work just fine. - Jonathan M Davis
