[LLVMdev] Exception Implementation Example added to Wiki

If the powers at be want this, I could easily transform the source to the LLVM coding standards, and add
the necessary portable UNIX support--someone else would have to add non-UNIX support although the
System library probably helps with this. However I'm guessing the LLVM release flux of the exception system, 
along with a lack of universal platform, dwarf JIT support might be a hinderance in such an endeavor. I don't
know what the current platform boundaries are for either JIT or JIT with dwarf emission, but I do know that
the LLVM exception design is being reconsidered for future releases (possibly 2.7?).

Also, as noted in the wiki, please see:

http://code.google.com/p/tart/ and 

for real world implementations. There are many others, as can be seen in the LLVM project page.
