Here is a generic exception_ptr implementation based on a registry of
exception types. (http://joshuanapoli.com/exception/) The registry is
built at runtime. boost::throw_exception can register the thrown type.
current_exception() searches for the most derived type in the registry
that matches the current exception.

I have an implementation of this for MSVC which I intended to upload
soon for
boost.thread, once I'd got a generic (and thus incomplete) version
working.

Source code attached.
