Thanks; I don't have a strong opinion either, I just incline towards
unifying; it happened to me a couple of times during debugging the two
returns behaved differently which irritated me :) Your example even shows a
real use case... it didn't occur to me.
ANSI doesn't provide a guideline either:
If the evaluation of the exception action returns normally (as if it had
returned from the #value:
message), the value returned from the exception action is returned as the
value of the #on:do:
message that created the handler.
The returnValue is returned as the value of the protected block of the
active exception handler.
Another example: Cuis uses a modified Exception>>#return definition which
means the modification applies only to the explicit behavior (the difference
is insignificant but it's there).
