Thanks for the detailed explanation, but indeed we are :-)

I was referring to exceptions generated by things such as signals,
interrupts, certain network errors, stack problems, etc.  Exceptions are
are not necessarily generated as a direct result of a particular piece
of Haskell code.  Simon called them asynchronous in his paper, so I'm
just stealing the term :-)
