What is the objection to the stack-destroying property of exceptions?

You can choose to catch the exception where ever you are prepared to 
deal with it. Only the stack frames between the throw point and the 
catch point are lost.

I don't see how that situation differs from the solution using a global 
flag. The stack frames between the point of error and the point where 
you check the flag are still lost.
