I'm not sure about the bit of the patch below. David,
-- ** Catching all exceptions
It is possible to catch all exceptions, by using the type 'SomeException':
but the reference to $catchall in Control/Exception/Base.hs isn't
working; in Control-Exception.html $catchall isn't expanded. Is that a
bug, or expected behaviour?
hunk ./Control/Exception/Base.hs 342
-- Note that we have to give a type signature to @e@, or the program

+-- to catch exceptions of any type, see the previous section \"Catching all
+-- exceptions \" for an explanation of the problems with doing so.
-- For catching exceptions in pure (non-'IO') expressions, see the
-- function 'evaluate'.
