Hi Emil,

boost.exception uses typeid() in several places which implies presence
of rtti. msvc 8.0 gives the following warning when compiling without

 .. : warning C4541: 'typeid' used on polymorphic type
 'boost::exception' with /GR-; unpredictable behavior may result

I did not find any mention about rtti neither in the documentation nor
in the reviews - is it a known thing?
