If an event handler triggers a SkipPackage event, we really want that
event to be received and processed by the higher code levels. Currently
it was getting caught and ignored which was leading to recipes
being present when they clearly shouldn't have been.

In general this exception catching looks to be doing the wrong thing. It
was introduced in
but we likely want exceptions to pass through to the higher layers.

This patch therefore removes that code.
