Has anybody got a "non-ignorable return" class that they could add to boost?
(A class that encapsulates a return value whose destructor asserts/aborts if
the return code has not been examined or deliberatedly ignored by the
calling code.)

It would be a natural for this sort of application, and would be a generally
useful utility class.
