Sebb commented on LANG-967:
---------------------------

Could be added to the class org.apache.commons.lang3.exception.ExceptionUtils

> Code should never catch and ignore all Throwables - ThreadDeath and VirtualMachineError
must be rethrown.
> It would be useful to provide a method to enforce this behaviour.
> For example,. as is done by the Tomcat method \[1] with source here \[2]
> Sample usage:
> {code}
> try {
>     reader.close();
> } catch (Throwable u) {
>     ExceptionUtils.handleThrowable(u);
> }
> {code}
> \[1] org.apache.tomcat.util.ExceptionUtils#handleThrowable()
> \[2] https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/trunk/java/org/apache/tomcat/util/ExceptionUtils.java
