"Dangerous" is a bit over-the-top, I was just reusing the word for parallel

But I prefer explicit to implicit. This:

try { something; } catch { }

isn't that much longer than this:

try { something; }

...and for me, having that glaring empty block there saying "You really
should do something here" is a good thing. :-)
