I believe sjlj are the easiest to get to work, but the least efficient +
they do not support multithreading out of the box.


Dunno much more about this.

I believe that there is great interest to have libstdc++ and exceptions
properly supported in eCos.

I'm working on getting a patch to STLport committed, where I've added
support for eCos(streams included). 

I don't know what the differences are between libstdc++ and STLport from
an application programmers point of view, though it seems to me that
libstdc++ would score higher in a gcc context since that would reduce
the number of sources for the toolchain.
