Yeah, I upgraded out coverity to the latest 8.7.0, hence the new
exception warnings on exceptions possibly thrown from dtors.

Note too that the checks just examine what methods could possibly be
called on any given code path through the code, not just the one used
in the dtor so


void thing(bool bar)
    if (bar)
       throw something

gets a warning.

Presumably adding noexcept(false) to things will generally have to wait
until the dynamic exception specification stuff is in place cause the
top of the various hierarchies need the loosest throw specs for
inherited things to loosen theirs to noexcept(false)
