Indeed, I use that a lot, when debugging in VS.NET.

More importantly, in the IDE, you can choose which exceptions (by 
type/category not by try-block) you want to break into, before itīs 
processed, either by any catch block or by the finally block.

I hope that Mono debugging will integrate that well with SharpDevelop and 
with Linux Debugging environments.
