Exceptio probat regulam. See my .sig:
John Cowan cowan@x http://ccil.org/~cowan
"The exception proves the rule." Dimbulbs think: "Your counterexample proves

the rule to the proof." But legal historians know it means "Evidence for an
exception is evidence of the existence of a rule in cases not excepted from."
