> In Java there is a hierarchy of errors, the idea is that you catch at different severities. It isn't particularly well implemented in Java with a weird hierarchy and errors strangely classified and poor naming. Despite these glaring shortcoming it does actually work!
> In Swift this general concept of user defined error type which have a severity level  could be implemented, it might be:
>    protocol ProgramFatalError {} // Not possible to catch - terminates program
>    protocol ThreadFatalError {} // Not possible to catch - terminates thread, but calls thread's deinit - deinit has access to the error
>    protocol Error {} // As is

How does TheadFatalError is supposed to behave in a world dominated by queue ?
