Subject: [boost] [exception] Lifetime of exception refered to by exception_ptr

I failed to find in Boost.Exception documentation any note on how long is
the lifetime of an exception object referred to by an exception_ptr. Also I
failed to find it in the referred N2179

It seems logical to assume that the lifetime is not shorter then the
lifetime of any exception_ptr object referring to the exception object.
N2179 suggests possibility of use of smart pointer as implementation of
exception_ptr which makes that assumption even more justified.

However I think that documentation should be explicit with this.
