Should it be arbitrary objects or just subclasses of exception: "It is recommended that user-defined exceptions in new code be derived from Exception, although for backward compatibility reasons, this is not required. Eventually this rule will be tightened."
If that is the rule, the bug report can be closed as "not-a-bug".
