Currently it's perfectly legit to configure w/ --enable-exceptions even though
mozilla doesn't use them at all. In fact, building w/ exceptions causes many
extra megabytes of bloat on linux. If we remove it from configure, at least we
don't look like we're promoting it's use.

I'm going to assume that anyone who uses this option knows about the bloat that
they are accuring.  If I'm not mistaken, you need to build mozilla components
with exceptions in order to use them in other programs that use exceptions,
right?  If that's the case, I don't see the point of making it harder for people
to compile with exceptions by removing this option.  The big rtti/exceptions
discussion in the newsgroup appears to have gone off on a tangent.  Is there
anything else I'm missing about the need to remove this option?
