throw_exception.hpp doesn't contain helper TRY/CATCH/RETHROW macros for two

1. Most non-g++ compilers accept the exception handling constructs in "no
exceptions" mode;

2. The proper way to fix code that relies on catch(...)+throw is to
introduce a RAII guard. This also helps with other catch(...)-related

This reminds me that I need to fix shared_count.hpp to not contain a

However, last time we discussed the issue, it was pointed out that the RAII
way has performance implications compared to catch(...)+throw. This lead to
detail/no_exception_support.hpp, which does contain a BOOST_RETHROW macro.
