Just to be clear, what I was trying to say that this review is just to
add the counter, and the discussion on how and when to access it is
something that I'd much rather have in context of a review of that code...
But yes, we do agree that dynamic bytecode instrumentation is a more
appropriate aproach to count the number of throwables. But that code and
the following review would depend on this one.
