      Just out of curiosity...because I am ignorant
about such things...what is the application of GSL 
where you would need the C++ exception handling? It 
is simple to modify the GSL error handler so it
doesn't immediately exit. In my case, I usually
have enough information to handle the error in the
present context, so the addition of the C++ exception
handling mechanism is unnecessary and time-consuming.
