It would of course, two years earlier.
When I wrote my message, I already had triple-checked

Put the whole message into the comments, and all is just fine.

Hey, that's just great!
Guess how often I had to re-read that code,
finally concluding that it is all-right that
way, but always thinking that I could have
saved quite some time by taking some notes :-)
The hardest thing to remember always was the fact
that the callee is saving the caller's state for
the exceptions. I always have to go through analysis
again to get it right, and I always think this is
not the way it should be.
