Propogating an exception in an different thread context than it started
in (different stack, specifically) is a hard, if not impossible, problem.

Just copying an exception so it will survive, typed correctly, the exit
of a catch clause seems daunting.

What mechanisms does boost.threads rely on/require such that this works
