[LLVMdev] Books/docs on exception handling

I'm trying to learn all that I can about exception handling from the  
compiler's point of view. Although much has been written about  
compiler theory in general -- parsing, code generation, you name it --  
I can find almost nothing on the specific problem of exception  
handling support. In fact, the most informative document I've been  
able to find so far is "Bill's EH Proposal":


Are there any other books or articles that I should know about? I'm  
looking for almost anything that talks about how compilers (LLVM or  
otherwise) parse exception handlers, generate landing pads, implement  
stack unwinding, and so on.
