As far as I know the point of the error category in boost::system is
to classify the error code, so that error codes (integers) returned
from different systems can coexist.

I think that with boost exception, a better way to differentiate one
integer (error code) from another is to just use different tags.

In other words, instead of the code above, you'd have:

throw some_error() <<


struct tag_errno: boost::error_info_value<int> { };
