Actually, the way exceptions are handled is
completely independent of boost::exception itself.

One could use chain of catch, Jeremy Day's library
or the approach suggested by Andreas Huber
or any combination.

The explicit support for a "exception transformer"
inside boost::exception is not needed (visiting
all stored data is a different thing).

So my arguing is OT in this regard.
