Personally, I use the modified launcher with exception protection commented out
all the time.

I recollect vaguely that introducing command line flag for disabling exception
handling in launcher was discussed and agreed upon, however, noone got to
implement it yet.

(The other "pending" task for launcher was moving it from luni module to
jdktools -- also seems to have been agreed upon and then abandoned)
