Why do you think I'm implementing this? I have quite an extensive
development platform with VTK and ITK integration, all implemented in
Python. Having the application crash at the slightest ITK hiccup is
quite irritating. :)
There will also be little or no performance impact, except perhaps for
calls like GetScalarTupleAsDouble() which are in some cases called quite
often from Python. Otherwise, we're talking about a single try-catch
clause around an Update() statement that causes seconds (or minutes) of
processing through the whole combined pipeline. The difference won't
even be measurable.
That being said, I absolutely agree that it should be made conditional.
I'll make a new patch and a patch for the top-level CMakeLists.txt.
If you have any comments about the cross-platform use of std::exception,
I would be grateful.
