Right, so IOW, the SEH support does all the required unwinding for us.
Ultimately I guess that's the only solution that's going to be both complete
and correct. (The only other thing I could even imagine would be some kind of
hideous .pdb abuse using the M$ official symbol files to extract the frame and
FPO information for frames in API functions...)
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
