Someone correct me if I'm doing it wrong, but for example the
RTTI-less and typeid-less configurations of Boost Exception, the
library I'm maintaining, are tested only by me on my own computer, and
I'm only testing them with MSVC and a single version of linux/gcc.
Shouldn't the automatic trunk/release tests handle these, as well as
other supported configurations?

I guess what I'm saying is, I can make a patch to make boost::function
work without RTTI, but I'm certainly not up to running those tests
too. :)
