I was wondering why the throw_exception function is not marked as
noreturn? This makes it troublesome to use it as a drop-in replacement
for throw statements as it starts to flag compiler warnings about
missing return statements in non-void functions.

I suggest to mark the function as noreturn at least for compilers that
support it. GCC has __attribute__((noreturn)), MSVC has
