It seems that it doesn't. The code in question, about 400 lines at
present, is fully contained in boost/exception/exception.hpp and as of
1.36 is included in boost/throw_exception.hpp. The purpose of this
coupling is to provide hooks to support boost::current_exception and
the ability for users to augment active exception objects with
additional (possibly user-specific) info not available at the point of
the throw.

If anyone is concerned about this coupling I encourage them to
participate in the discussion on this very subject going on right now
(hopefully after familiarizing themselves with the exception library.)
