Change exception handling to be on by default? #94

@zheqiMicrosoft looking for your input here.

I'm documenting and cleaning up some things, and I realized I think I made my optional exception handling too dangerous. There's a define XRLOADER_ENABLE_EXCEPTION_HANDLING that you must enable except in two conditions (excerpt from in-progress note in docs):

  • Due to a project policy, you're using a custom standard-library build
    that has exception throwing disabled.
    (The loader itself does not throw any exceptions but it uses standard
    library functionality that may throw.)
  • You're developing or debugging the loader and want exceptions to go
    uncaught to trigger a debugger.

However, if somebody doesn't use CMake, it's easy to forget to fail to define something, so it seems like the better, safer default is to catch exceptions unless XRLOADER_DISABLE_EXCEPTION_HANDLING is defined.

I imagine for your uses, you could probably add that define in to your alternate build system, but I wanted to find out for sure before I made a PR.
