One such thing might be rethrow functionality.

class exception
    void rethrow() const throw (exception) = 0; // { throw cloneException(); }

Such functionality can be used to try {} and catch {} in separate threads.
In fact, I can recall at least one library in boost vault (join) that requires such
functionality already.
