Tom, I need some more help in understanding what you are proposing.

What exactly is error_t? It is confusing because the way you use it
above, it appears that it's an exception type. At the same time, it
makes reference to boost::error_info, which is _not_ an exception type
(in the current definition of Boost Exception, error_info it is not
something you throw.)
