RE: [boost] Proposal: string_castHello,

I was wondering if it was possible to make boost work without exception
support. I am not asking this as a way to support old compilers, but only
because in my projects there are several points in which I have to disable
exceptions for performance reasons (with most compilers, it seems that
handling exceptions still have a high run-time cost). In a perfect world
where exception support does not slow down your code (I don't know if this
is possible at all), there would not be any problem, but for now I have to
disable them. Wrapping try/catch keywords into preprocessor macros would do
the trick, but I'm sure you already know this very well.
