Using a stringstream would be my approach to achieve this affect, but I
wonder what would happen if the stream operation generated an exception?

   throw( std::ostringstream() << "Error #" << 404 << weberror( 404 ));

what if weberror thows an exception? Also, is ostringstream guaranteed not
to throw an exception?

Throwing an exception during the exception process is not a good idea!
