In my mind both approaches are about the same, except that the wrapper
approach is decoupled from the exception library. It's not that I like
it better, but it can be implemented on top of the current exception
library interface.

I certainly don't want to add anything to Boost Exception without
knowing that someone has a use case for that.

What is "the" tread_pool library we're talking about?
