> Sometimes an exception is retrofitted into control flow to interrupt it in a way that it wasn't originally designed to be interrupted. Such an exception is an implementation detail. Once the exception is caught internally, it is discarded.
> An exception has a stacktrace. Filling in a stacktrace is not free. Filling in a stacktrace that won't be used seems like a waste.
