Now find a way to throw exceptions from the kernel into userspace without
violating MS's patents on exactly that.

(Among other things, this would partition the space of processes *again*:
you'd now have 32-bit, 64-bit, 32-bit-extended-error, and
64-bit-extended-error processes... and, uniquely, these extended-error
processes would require *source code changes*. I don't think this is going
to fly, not least because you'd need to convince Ulrich Drepper to do this
to libc, or write a new one. Writing a new one is likely to be less
difficult :) )
