I quickly created a simple clang_delta pass to remove/simplify try-catch constructs. For more details have a look at the pull request: https://github.com/csmith-project/creduce/pull/157
For now it is fairly simple but I think it should help already against useless try-catch blocks. Later we could have a more advanced pass to keep only catch-blocks or to concatenate them with the try-block.

Let me know what you think.
