I believe that get_exception_info makes a great difference!
Obligating your users to use dynamic_cast you're making dynamic_cast
being part of the interface of your library. Which makes no sense,
dynamic_casts should be an implementation detail. And implementation
details shouldnt be exposed by the interface.
