This was my main concern with the library, as well. As it stands,
the library consists primarily of a method for attaching
data to objects at runtime. This is a neat, well-thought-out
capability that I can imagine would be useful outside the realm
of exceptions. If this library were renamed (though a really good
name isn't coming to mind right now), it could of course still be
used in any future boost exception lib.
