> "One of Java's most controversial features is checked exceptions, and most other languages—including
newer JVM-based languages (Scala, Clojure, etc.)—have dispensed with them. Check out this
fantastic interview with Anders Hejlsberg (creator of C#) on why checked exceptions are a
bad idea.
> This utility gives users a way to dispense with checked exceptions even in Java, in a
minimally intrusive fashion. By standardizing such a utility and giving it widespread adoption,
hopefully the folks over at Oracle will eventually give in and drop the feature in a later
release of Java. Luckily, it wouldn't be backwards incompatible to do so."
