As David said, exceptions aren't inherently a problem.  The policy (is it 
written down anywhere?) is that we don't use exceptions in the platform 

You should also bear in mind that exceptions may be disabled in the Qt build, 
and so should not be allowed to pass into Qt code - generally, as long as you 
don't allow exceptions to escape from slots, you should be OK.
