      Description

      The Clownfish exception mechanism wraps the host language's exception
      mechanism, making it possible to throw host exceptions from C code without
      knowledge of the host language. We need to augment this capability
      with a way to trap exceptions from C.

      This new feature will enable us to clean up a couple places in the code base,
      such as opening an index reader. More importantly, though, it will make it
      possible to write tests in C which verify error handling.
