But those aren't system calls; the terminology I'm accustomed to is
quite specific, a system call is a trap from user to kernel mode.
Should we make the description of 'catch syscall' more clear to
exclude other OS facilities?
Trapping on other kinds of Windows events would be a nice feature,
but I don't think it's this same feature. We have other kinds of
catchpoints (e.g. for Ada exceptions); I think that's the right place
to add Windows system services, if someone contributes an
implementation to catch them.
