This paper on exceptions is a very good read for those that have been
confused by "new style" erlang exceptions.

http://www.erlang.se/workshop/2004/exception.pdf

It explains
* problems with the "old style" exceptions
* why the new style exceptions had to work the way they do
* usable variations on the try-catch clauses
* nice understandable examples

And all in only 10 pages. You got to love small but complete and well
written papers!

Thanks Richard, Björn, Patrik!
