Logophilia. Don't judge me. https://t.co/KEzsIqNsRQ @headius In that case…carry on! @headius I see, you are proposing that exceptions don’t fill in stack trace on throw if already filled in.WWDC - Why Would Developers Care? @headius The fact that stack trace gets filled in at construction means it’s cheap to re-use. @headius What I meant was that in this pattern you don’t care about stack trace, but you do want stack-unwinding of thrown exception...On this day of sadness we are all Steve the suicidal security robot. https://t.co/mIK5eu5X3G @headius Not that that’s useful all that often, but when it is it can be a huge savings. @headius Don’t know but it allows an optimization where code holds ref to an exception and reuses it as needed.True confession: I once introduced a scalac optimizer bug because I forgot NaN != NaN. https://t.co/gIiODwVpzy @contrarivariant Pronounced “code iffy”, a clear sign that you won’t be getting an LGTM any time soon.
