The default compiler settings for Puma/AspectC++ contain "-fno-rtti 
-fno-exceptions". Therefore, we can't do what you propose at the moment 
-- we would have to change the setting first. If somebody has the time 
for evaluating the code size / performance implications of removing 
these options, go ahead. I'd happily remove the options if the impact 
was irrelevant.
