Here is the documentation updated regarding the requests made above. Error
handling customization is now explained with an example. I describe a call
with a user_error policy, and also the use of the
BOOST_MATH_OVERFLOW_ERROR_POLICY macro. However, I don't show any example of
use of a try/catch block with the default call, because using try/catch is a
widely known C++ practice so I assume that the user knows what he has to do
when I say "by default a std::overflow_error is thrown". Do you think such a
trivial example should be present anyway?

By the way, there is a slight error in this page:
The first line of the first code section opens the namespace "policy"
instead of "policies".

Let me know if there's anything to modify again.

What about the possibility of allowing a return type compatible with
Boost.Units and/or possibly integral ? I see 3 solutions:
- a return type policy in second template argument (with the current one as
- a completely different function name
- nothing at all (stick to the standard and nothing else)
