When developing a program I'd like to know as soon as possible when my 
code triggers an apparently unhandled exception. Because Wing reports it 
immediately, I can inspect the local situation and adjust my code. Also, 
in some situations code using a blanked except clause, may mask actual 
bugs in the code; I'd like to know about those too.

Did you see you can tell Wing to ignore the specific exception whatever 
the setting of when an exception is to be reported? The option is 
offered at the time the exception is reported.
