Feedback on applying implicit exceptions wanted

Andreas Klebinger
I'm currently working out ideas for potential optimizations in pattern
matching compilation for GHC.

While I think the theory works out fine in regards to exceptions I would
like feedback on the possible implications.

Trac ticket with details is here:

As for the theory I worked based of the assumptions that error = bottom
and pattern match failure = error. Otherwise we get different results
from both cases even in theory.

While I mostly worry about the practical implications I would also
appreciate any other feedback.
