Re: SecurityException throwpoint audit

Hi again,

I take it that nobody minds if I start doing this.  The attached
script can be used to create the annotated list of throwpoints so
you can look up IDs I add in comments or whatever.  The script
performs some MD5 checks so you can be sure you're looking at the
same page I am.
