Hi, I'm developing some code with libsyck but I'm using C++, one issue with the
way that the package is built is that one cannot throw a c++ exception in the
syck error handlers and recover in the c++ code.  

Basically what happens is that if you throw an exception in the error handler
(which is called by C code) you cannot catch it in a c++ try{} block, and so
your application will terminate.

If libsyck is built with -fexceptions then this problem is solved [and it only
adds 5k to the size of the binary].

I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to build the package with this option?
