When making applications that work on more than one platform and more 
than one JDK, working around specific implementation bugs is a very 
common problem. I just remeber the drag and drop and threading 
nightmares in Swing under Windows and Mac OS X under 1.3 and 1.4 from 
some other project... So objections from my side.

Also I think it is good design making distinct parts of an application 
(i.e. libraries) catch all unchecked exceptions and handle them in a 
generic way (e.g. rethrow them as a general checked exception) to 
protect other parts of the application. This improves isolation of 
individual components.
